Paul Bowman & Katharina Berndt Rasmussen (eds)
This volume comprises the second round of preprint papers written as part of the Climate ethics and future generations project. This multi-disciplinary project, led by PI Gustaf Arrhenius and co-PIs Krister Bykvist and Göran Duus-Otterström, aims to provide comprehensive and cutting-edge research on ethical questions con-cerning future generations in the context of climate change policy.
The eleven papers in this volume are organized according to the project’s three main themes: Foundational questions in population ethics, which concerns how we should evaluate future scenarios in which the number of people, their welfare, and their identities may vary; Climate justice, which concerns the just distribution of the burdens and benefits of climate change and climate policy, both intra- and inter-generationally; and From theory to practice, which concerns how to apply normative theories to the circumstances of climate change, in light of both normative uncertainty and practical constraints.
