Samenvatting

This title examines the ethical and philosophical questions confronting activists, policy makers and educators in the battle against climate change. Future Ethics: Climate Change and Political Action presents a comprehensive examination of the philosophical questions facing activists, policy makers and educators fighting the causes of climate change. These questions reflect a genuine crisis in ethical reflection for individuals and groups in today's society and are also underpinned by a broader question of how the future forms the basis for action in the present. For instance, does the reporting of impending 'points of no return' in global warming renew a spirit of resistance or a spirit of fatalism? How is the future of the human species really imagined in society and how does this affect our sense of ethical responsibility? In this fascinating book, thirteen leading experts explore the philosophical and ethical issues underlying social responses to climate change and in particular how these responses draw upon ideas about the future. Ideal for students of environmental ethics in multiple disciplines, the book provides sources and discussion for anyone interested in issues to do with environment, society and ethics.

Recensie(s)

How should we think the future? This is the vital climate change question posed by this compelling collection of essays. Confronting the idea of apocalypse head on, contributors ask what imaginings are required to lever the changes we need. Does the idea of catastrophe free us to think anew, or freeze us into inaction? In the wake of Copenhagen, fresh thinking is needed - the kind of thinking you'll find in this book. --Andy Dobson, Keele University, UK Intellectual titillation --Morning Star The climate revolution is being televised- not only in fantasy-disaster flicks like The Day After Tomorrow but on the morning weather report. The future is here, and it needs an ethics. --Harpers
