Críticas:

There is little doubt that anthropogenic climate change constitutes an unprecedented challenge for human civilization. And there is no doubt whatsoever that the ethical dimensions involved not the scientific, technical and economic ones make that challenge almost intractable. Only deep and bold thinking beyond the conventional realms of scholarship can show us the way towards a just global solution. This thinking is provided, in its finest form, by Henry Shue. (Professor H. J. Schellnhuber, Director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK))

Professor Henry Shue reminds us that climate change is indeed the unavoidable issue of our time just as efforts to reach an international climate agreement in 2015 intensify. My own work on climate justice is informed by the work of Henry Shue, as the impacts of climate change increasingly undermine human rights and it is the most vulnerable in our societies who are impacted most. Climate Justice: Vulnerability and Protection is a timely collection of essays for all who are concerned with the well-being of our shared humanity. (Mary Robinson, President of the Mary Robinson Foundation Climate Justice and UN Secretary Generals Special Envoy for the Great Lakes region of Africa)

The collection of essays by Henry Shue entitled Climate Justice provides comprehensive coverage of the key justice issues facing the international community as it grapples with the twin challenge of mitigating and adapting to climate change. The authors own areas of research interest, as well as the chronological development of his arguments, are clearly laid out. (Ross Gillard, Polical Studies Review)

Reseña del editor:

The fruit of twenty years of moral reflection on the emerging greatest challenge to humanity of the 21st century, these far-sighted and influential essays by a pioneering practical philosopher on the tangled questions of justice between nations and justice across generations confronting all attempts at international cooperation in controlling climate change sharply crystallize the central choices and offer constructive directions forward. Arguing that persistent attempts by U.S. negotiators to avoid the fundamental issues of justice at the heart of persistent international disagreement on the terms of a binding multilateral treaty are as morally misguided as they are diplomatically counter-productive, Henry Shue has built a case that efforts to price carbon (through cap-and-trade or carbon taxes) as a mechanism to drive down greenhouse gas emissions by the affluent must, for both ethical and political reasons, be complemented by international transfers that temporarily subsidize the development of non-carbon energy and its dissemination to those trapped in poverty. Our vital escape from climate change rooted in the dominance of the fossil fuel regime ought not, and in fact need not, come at the price of de-railing the escape of the world's poorest from poverty rooted in lack of affordable energy that does not undermine the climate. The momentum of changes in the planetary climate system and the political inertia of energy regimes mean that future generations, like the poorest of the present, are vulnerable to our decisions, and they have rights not to be left helpless by those of us with the power instead to leave them hope.
