Global Climate Change: A Senior-Level Debate at the Intersection of Economics, Strategy, Technology, Science, Politics, and International Negotiation - Paperback

2008, ISBN: 9780787941031

ID: 844242677

Viva Books Private Limited, 2008. Softcover. New. Description: The debate about the existence of climate change seems finally at an end. We now have to decide what to do about it. Here, James Garvey argues that the ultimate rationale for action on climate change cannot be simply economic, political, scientific or social, though no doubt our decisions should be informed by such things. Instead, climate change is largely a moral problem. What we should do about it depends on what matters to us and what we think is right. This book is an introduction to the ethics of climate change. It considers a little climate science and a lot of moral philosophy, ultimately finding a way into the many possible positions associated with climate change. It is also a call for action, for doing something about the moral demands placed on both governments and individuals by the fact of climate change. This is a book about choices, responsibility, and where the moral weight falls on our warming world. Articulate, provocative and stimulating, this timely book will make a significant contribution to one of the most important debates of our time. Contents: Introduction • A Warmer World: Strange changes; Consensus; Sound science; prospects • Right and Wrong: Philosophy and morality; The importance of giving reasons; Justifying moral beliefs; Consistency, moral theories, intuitions; Environmental ethics • Responsibility: Agency and spatial and temporal complexities; The prisoner’s dilemma and the tragedy of the commons; Historical principles of justice; Present entitlements and capacities; Sustainability • Doing Nothing: Uncertainty; Costs; Technological rescue; Waiting for others to act; Urgency • Doing Something: Criteria of moral adequacy; UNFCCC and Kyoto; Equal per capital shares; Comparable burdens • Individual Choices: Consistency again; Psychological barriers; Individual action; civil disobedience • Epilogue • Notes • Bibliography • Index Printed Pages: 188., Viva Books Private Limited, 2008, Viva Books Private Limited, 2008.
