Ethics of Climate Change - by James Garvey[Reading report] by Domitille de la Morinerie

2011-06-07

Domitille de la Morinerie graduated from the ESCP in 2011 and was part of the "Alternative Management" third year program in HEC. She also holds a Master's degree from the University of La Sorbonne, in urban and territorial planning. She is very interested in the current urban stakes and issues and in the economic development of territories.

In this book, James Garvey considers ethical issues concerning current climate changes.  He uses scientific data from main international research organizations and principles of moral philosophy and demonstrates that each protagonist (individuals and countries) is morally responsible for the phenomena. He argues that inaction is not morally acceptable and exhorts each reader to restore coherence between convictions and actions. James Garvey can be considered as an “activist ecologist”; since the only way to solve the problem is to change radically our lifestyle.
