Climate Change and Individual Moral Duties


The global trends of increasing climate change are predicted to intensify over the next few decades. General consensus remains that climate change is caused by actions of various entities at various levels, and it is nearly universally accepted that it is morally unacceptable. However, who does the onus of taking action against climate change lie with?

In the fourth episode of our new themed series Survival by Degrees, Dr. Anna Luisa Lippold, programme manager at THE NEW INSTITUTE, puts forth the suggestion that the responsibility for tackling climate change is a public notion, rather than an individual effort, in the context of her work Climate Change and Individual Moral Duties, published by Brill.
