Cosmopolitanism on Climate Costs - Dictionary of Arguments

Norgaard I 325
Climate Costs/Cosmopolitanism: The problem of climate change has emerged in the wake of several decades of growing debate among philosophers on the topic of cosmopolitanism—that is, whether the rights and duties that obtain between people within the same nation or other community also obtain between people in different countries and communities. These debates have focused primarily on questions of distributive justice, and in particular on whether rich countries and their citizens have obligations of economic justice towards poor countries and their citizens.
