Teaching Areas:

Bunyan Bryant is the Director of the Environmental Justice Initiative. The Initiative has merged several data bases for research purposes. More specifically, the Initiative asks research questions related to environmental equity, environmental justice, and climate justice, and ascertains to what extent the siting of undesirable land uses is related to race and income. The Initiative continues to focus on immediate research outcomes: 1) the contribution of combustible fossil fuel emissions to global climate change, 2) the health, economic, and social impacts of these power plant emissions in the immediate area, and 3) the demographics of the people living in proximity to these plants. In addition, the Initiative focuses on quality of life issues for communities.
