Emissions rights, sustainability, and the ethics of climate change

Here are two more posts at talkingphilosophy in a series on the changing facts of climate change — there’s one on emissions histories, one on equal per capita shares and another about sustainability arguments for action.  The general line is that the facts are shifting around, and I think that’s doing something to the moral dimension of climate change.  The posts are from a talk I gave in Utrecht earlier this month, and you can watch a video of that here if you can stand it.

The second post mentions Aubrey Meyer, the man behind contraction and convergence, and I was happily startled to see him weigh in a bit in the comments.
