Introduction

1. There are few book-length treatments of the ethical issues connected to climate change. For recent and thoughtful treatments of the issue, see Steve Vanderheiden, Atmospheric Justice (2008); James Garvey, The Ethics of Climate Change: Right and Wrong in a Warming World (2008). A number of ethical studies are collected in Fair Weather, Equity Concerns in Climate Change (Ferenc L. Toth, ed., 1999). The reports by the International Panel on Climate Change contain discussions of ethical issues in a variety of places, most prominently in its Working Group III report, pages 142—47. Bert Metz, et al., Climate Change 2007, Mitigation of Climate Change, Working Group III Contribution to the Fourth Assessment Report of the International Panel on Climate Change. A number of analysts have considered how various ethical issues might be applied to a climate change agreement, analyzing, for example, how permits might be allocated across nations under various principles. Many of these studies are summarized in the IPCC report. The Stern Review considers ethical issues in its chapter 2 of Nicholas Stern, The Economics of Climate Change (2007). A great deal of work touches on ethical issues but is more oriented toward technical problems; see, for example, the essays collected in Architectures for Agreement: Addressing Global Climate Change in the Post-Kyoto World (Joseph E. Aldy and Robert N. Stavins, eds., 2007). Beyond these sources, there is a vast and unwieldy literature on the ethics of climate change—one that crosses numerous disciplinary boundaries. For a somewhat dated survey article of work by moral philosophers, see Stephen M. Gardiner, Ethics and Global Climate Change, 114 Ethics 555 (2004). Other earlier works include John Broome, Counting the Cost of GlobalWarming (1992); Donald Brown, American Heat: Ethical Problems and the United States' Response to Global Warming (2002); Michael Grubb, Seeking Fair Weather: Ethics and the International Debate on Climate Change, 71 International Affairs 463 (1995); Dale Jamieson, Global Responsibilities: Ethics, Public Health and Global Environmentall Change, 4 Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies 99 (1998); Henry Shue, Subsistence Emissions and Luxury Emissions, 15 Law and Policy 39 (1993); Martino Traxler, Fair Chore
