Collection Description

Climate Ethics


Globethics.net Climate ethics collection is focusing on the gathering of latest scientific and journalistic documentation available on the ethical and theoretical framework around climate change regulation and ethics, including the problematic tendency toward "climate deregulation", i. e. mesures taken to scale back climate mitigation standards.

In: his review of S. Gardiner and D. Weisbach (2016): Debating Climate Ethics (Oxford: UP), Byron Williston explains the normative issue around climate ethics, as directly related to:

"The stated goal of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) [which] is to ensure that greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere are stabilized so that "dangerous anthropogenic interference" in the climate system is avoided. In December 2015, (...) the Conference of Parties, met in Paris and agreed that the only way to prevent such interference is to keep average global temperatures "well below" 2°C relative to the pre-industrial baseline (...) Meeting the target -- or even just avoiding the path of catastrophe we are already on, which is taking us to a 5°C world -- will require bold policy innovation. The question is, what theoretical tools best equip us to understand the challenge?" (NDPR, 2016.11.20).

Globethics.net Library provides updated research papers showing the promises of progress, and good will as well as the concrete risks of regressus, inherent to this intergenerational problem and moral dilemma. The whole collection has been updated as of February 2018.
