  • Has humanity entered the Anthropocene?
  • Is climate change primarily an ethical issue?
  • Does climate change represent a moral wrong?
  • What are the impacts of climate change?
  • What are the main causes of political inaction?
  • What is the argument for climate change denial?
  • What are intragenerational justice and intergenerational justice?
  • To what extent is climate change an economic problem?
  • Is geoengineering an ethically appropriate response to climate change?

Featuring case studies throughout, this textbook provides a philosophical introduction to an immensely topical issue studied by students within the fields of applied ethics, global justice, sustainability, geography, and politics.
