Climate Justice

Climate change and its associated effects raises a whole host of ethical issues. Some of these concern the intergenerational injustices one generation might visit upon another, others concern the type of ethical regard humans ought to demonstrate towards nature, others still deal with the ways in which existing and historic injustices might impact upon the varying levels of responsibility various nations have to tackle and/or mitigate climate change.
