DESCRIPTION:

Michael Northcott, Emeritus Professor of Ethics at Edinburgh University addresses climate justice.

Michael Northcott, Emeritus Professor of Ethics at Edinburgh University, addresses climate justice. Global heating is changing the climate of the Earth at a pace few scientists anticipated but there is huge lack of urgency in response. Climate justice is about the deep injustice that means those who have most responsibility for producing climate changing gases are least likely to suffer injury from its effects.

Professor Northcott is the author of a number of books on climate and environmental justice.

Presented by Tweedgreen, the local sustainability group.
