Climate Ethics: An ISEE Blog

Collapse of Larsen B Ice ShelfGlobal climate change is the leading environmental issue of our time.  Too often, however, discussions about how to justly and prudently respond to climate change are obscured by power politics or an inability to place economic analyses within a larger ethical framework. With Earth heating up and the rollout of IPCC’s 5th Assessment Report, there is a real need to bring rigorous ethical thinking to bear on discussions of climate change.

It is for this reason that ISEE has decided to initiate a blog as a service to environmental scholars and concerned citizens who would like to share their thoughts and insights on climate ethics with one another. Our hope is that the blog will serve the global community as we together seek to understand our responsibilities in a warming world.

Contributors include Andrew Light, Clare Palmer, Stephen Gardiner, Katie McShane, Kyle Powys Whyte, Trish Glazebrook, and Donald A. Brown, among others.  If you would like to be a contributor please email ISEE at
