Ethics of Global Climate Change

John Broome is one of the leading moral philosophers of our time. He has done groundbreaking work in theory of value and on reasons, rationality, and normativity. He has also investigated the connections between economics and ethics. His books include Weighing Good, Ethics Out of Economics, Weighing Lives, and the forthcoming book Rationality through Reasoning.  Broome has also had a longterm interest in the ethics of climate change. He has published two wonderful books on the topic: Counting the Cost of Climate Change (1992) and Climate Matters: Ethics in a Warming World (2012).  In these books, Broome uses the best tools of economics and moral philosophy to explore one of the most serious ethical challenges we face.
