Ethics and Climate Change

A colleague at North Carolina IPL is recommending the book Moral Climate: The Ethics of Climate Change by Michael Northcott as a great read for people of faith who care about climate change. It is available at

Here is the blurb from the UK site

Significant climate change as a consequence of human pollution of the atmosphere looks increasingly likely. Some change is already occurring but quite what magnitude of change will occur and what it will bring to different parts of the world remains unknown. In the face of this uncertain yet impending crisis, does it make sense to speak of a moral response? Michael Northcott argues not only that it does, but that it is an essential weapon in winning the battle against further environmental disaster.

Interfaith Power and Light is a religious response to global warming with chapters in 25 states and Greater Washington, D.C. Find a link to your local chapter at discounts on energy saving products at
