An ad hoc meeting of about African negotiators, civil society members, and legislators was hastily called at the chaotic Copenhagen climate negotiations in December It was the first week, and the divisive Danish text had just been leaked.

Atmosfear: Communicating the Effects of Climate Change on Extreme Weather

Don't have an account? No dates are specified by which emissions are to be reduced by the wealthy states, and no dollars are specified with which the wealthy states will assist the poor states to avoid an environmentally dirty development like our own. The convention is toothless because throughout the negotiations in the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee during to , the United States played the role of dentist: whenever virtually all the other states in the world with the notable exceptions of Saudi Arabia and Kuwait agreed to convention language with teeth, the United States insisted that the teeth be pulled out. The Clinton administration now faces a strategic question: should the next step aim at a comprehensive treaty covering all greenhouse gases GHGs or at a narrower protocol covering only one, or a few, gases, for example, only fossil-fuel carbon dioxide CO2? Richard Stewart and Jonathan Wiener have argued for moving directly to a comprehensive treaty, while Thomas Drennen has argued for a more focused beginning. I will suggest that Drennen is essentially correct that we should not try to go straight to a comprehensive treaty, at least not of the kind advocated by Stewart and Wiener. First I would like to develop a framework into which to set issues of equity or justice of the kind introduced by Drennen.

Responding to Climate Disaster: The Cosmopolitan Challenge to China

To achieve this objective, governments have agreed that climate change is a common but differentiated responsibility: all countries are responsible for doing something about climate change, but the affluent ones, which are the largest historical polluters of the atmosphere, are obligated to act first to reduce their emissions of GHGs before the developing countries are required to limit theirs. Diplomats heeded recommendations of philosophers and experts on international cooperation who saw international justice as essential to an effective and fair climate change regime. Some governments have started to act on their obligations, as reflected in recent efforts by some European states to limit their GHG emissions Harris ; b. However, these efforts have been tiny compared to what is required. Nearly every day we are confronted with news about the increasing impacts of global climate change. By any reasonable measure, anthropogenic interference with the atmospheric commons is already dangerous, contributing to environmental damage and human suffering, especially in the poorest parts of the world IPCC

The Politics of International Climate Adaptation Funding: Justice and Divisions in the Greenhouse

He studied at Merton from as a Rhodes Scholar. His research has focused on the role of human rights, especially economic rights, in international affairs and, more generally, on institutions to protect the vulnerable. Specifically, after work on the morality of strategies for nuclear weapons in the s, his writing during the s turned mainly to the issues of justice arising in international negotiations over climate change. During the first decade of the s his writing concentrated on the two primary aspects of war: the resort to war, especially preventive military attacks ['preemption'], and the conduct of war, especially the bombing of 'dual-use' infrastructure like electricity-generating facilities. Most of his work on climate change has appeared as Climate Justice: Vulnerability and Protection Oxford , and most of the writing on violence appears as Fighting Hurt: Rule and Exception in Torture and War Oxford

Anthropogenic climate change—in its historical, scientific, political, legal, and socioeconomic contexts—is framed in terms of values, goals, and choices for which climate science and modeling alone cannot provide sufficient guidance in decision-making. Commentators, activists, and policymakers regularly ground their claims and motives in terms of values and choices that they see contributing to a better climatic future, arguing that their proposals are better informed, fairer, or more altruistic than those of their opponents Lee But outside the explicit calls to consider moral values in making climate-relevant decisions, there is a level at which values enter into the discussion without being recognized as such. In this article, we look at the assumptions, mostly implicit or unstated, that embody norms and expectations about the relationship between social responsibility and the ontology of climate change. In particular, we look at the representation of climate change as that of a physical entity responsible for increasing the socioeconomic and environmental impacts of future weather events.

This article suggests that three widely shared commonsense principles of fairness or equity converge upon the same general answer to the question of how the costs of dealing with a global environmental challenge like climate change could be distributed internationally. The first of these principles is that when a party has in the past taken an unfair advantage of others by imposing costs upon them without their consent, those who have been unilaterally put at a disadvantage are entitled to demand that in the future the offending party shoulder burdens that are unequal at least to the extent of the unfair advantage previously taken, in order to restore equality. The second is that, among a number of parties, all of whom are bound to contribute to some common endeavour, the parties who have the most resources normally should contribute the most to the endeavour. The third commonsense principle is that, when a some people have less than enough for a decent human life, b other people have more than enough, and c the total resources available are so great that everyone could have at least enough without preventing some people from still retaining considerably more than others have, it is unfair not to guarantee everyone at least an adequate minimum.

This complexity in understanding the political economy of climate change is reflected in its temporal, spatial and conceptual dimensions.
