One thought on “Introduction To The Ethics of Climate Change -Video Part One

  1. Just watched your video part #1: excellent! Thanks for taking the time to do this. One of the promising stategies to turn this country around is to use the social media and hope this most important ethical issue of all time gets the attention it deserves. The science is clear, the politics have been sabotaged by the fossil fuel lobby (mind-boggling!), and emphasis on ethics is exactly the appeal that’s appropriate. The future frankly looks bleak to me: 400ppm CO2 and rising fast with awful effects; and a US election in Nov. which may install the evil Deniers.
