Paul Bowman & Katharina Berndt Rasmussen (eds)
There is a very rich scientific literature on different emission pathways and the climatic changes associated with them. There are also a substantial number of analyses of the long-term macroeconomic effects of climate policy. But science cannot say which level of warming we ought to be aiming for or how much consumption we ought to be prepared to sacrifice without an appeal to values and normative principles.
The research program Climate Ethics and Future Generations aims to offer this kind of guidance by bringing together the nor- mative analyses from philosophy, economics, political science, social psychology, and demography. The main goal is to deliver comprehensive and cutting-edge research into ethical questions in the context of climate change policy.
This volume showcases a first collection of eleven working papers by researchers within the program, who address this question from different disciplines.
