GOVT 60.10 Environmental Ethics

This course examines how principles of justice apply to our environmental choices and public policies.  We will first consider different ethical perspectives on our relationship to non-human animals and the environment.  Subjects include: population growth and control; the siting of toxic waste; the use of animals; the protection of endangered species; the conservation of ecosystems; and the human re-creation of nature.  In the final section of the course, we will examine in greater depth the ethics of climate change, considering how developed and developing nations are differentially responsible for climate change and its remediation, what our obligations are to future generations, and what obligations individuals bear to contribute to sustainability and limit consumption.
