Climate change is perhaps the most important issue of our time and yet the international measures necessary to mitigate it have not been implemented. Given the urgency of the problem, why has so little been done? Climate Ethics identifies the reasons behind this crucial paradox and outlines a way forward. In the first part of the book the authors provide an accessible account of the basics of climate change, demystifying the complicated terminology that so often hinders a proper understanding of the subject. In the second part, they explore the complex ethical and moral questions that need to be addressed if long-term solutions to climate change are to be realised. What moral responsibility do we have to future generations? How should we share out emission rights? Do we take into account past emissions? What is the fairest approach to the politics of climate change on a global scale? An original and timely engagement with one of the most pressing problems facing us and future generations.
