James Garvey's short book is designed as an introductory text on a dauntingly complex and serious question. The issue is complex because it involves questions of scientific fact, competing understandings of moral value, different conceptions and levels of moral responsibility, and conflicts between the moral principles that one can call upon to guide or assess policy-making. It is serious because even conservative estimates of climate change indicate its alarming potential to disrupt and threaten the lives of humans and other animals and forms of life over the next century.
