Climate Crisis Energy Violence: Mapping Fossil Energy's Enduring Grasp on a Vulnerable Future communicates the extremity, breadth and extent of energy violence across energy sources, sectors and geographies. The work accommodates structural, ecological, institutional, physical and economic forms of energy violence, exploring the field through novel research methods and data sources, including the use of comparative homicide and repression databases, the analysis of hotspots and sacrifice zone analysis, and systematic representations of the full continuum of violence. The work is accompanied by comprehensive case studies drawn from global examples, including coal mining, oil production, hydraulic fracturing, biofuels, hydroelectric dams and solar panel construction.

By framing the work in the context of violence, and in particular the use of metrics, the book provides a compelling and engaging argument for energy justice.
