KlimaCampus Kolloquium: Climate change: life and death

Climate change raises important and difficult issues of ethics. Broadly they fall into two classes. There are issues of justice concerned with how the effort of dealing with climate change should be shared among countries and people. And there are issues of value concerned with judging the harm that climate change will do, and the benefits of measures to control it. I shall concentrate on value, and particularly on the special problems for value theory that arise from the life-and-death effects of climate change. Climate change will shorten many people's lives, and it will affect the number of people who will be born. How should we take these effects into account when making decisions about climate change?
