Ethics, environmental justice and climate change

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Climate change cannot be fully understood or effectively mitigated without considering its ethical aspects. This volume brings together recent journal articles, written by eminent experts in the field, to illuminate the ethics of climate change and the related questions of justice. The editor has selected works that explore the themes of environmental philosophy, duties and responsibilities, intergenerational justice, international equity, cosmopolitanism, human rights, individual obligations and climate policy. With an original introduction by the editor, this volume is an essential resource for scholars, students, activists and policymakers. Copyright © 2017 Edward Elgar Publishing.
