World Ethics and Climate Change

From International to Global Justice

Paul G. Harris

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Describes the role of ethics and justice in world affairs and demonstrates that climate change is a matter of extreme injustice
  • Summarizes and critiques the flawed doctrine of international (interstate) justice upon which governments have premised climate change agreements and policies
  • Examines the practical and ethical significance for climate change of growing numbers of new consumers in the developing world
  • Proposes a cosmopolitan approach to climate change that is more principled, more practical and more politically viable than current international policies
  • For lecturers and students, a companion World Ethics and Climate Change learning guide is freely downloadable from www.euppublishing.comAll of the author's royalties are directly paid to OXFAM in support of the world's poor, who are most harmed by - and least responsible for - climate change."
