Abstract

Climate change is an immense, long-term and global challenge that raises difficult questions about justice and human rights, both within and across generations. Humanity’s ability to address these questions is a test of our capacity to manage the consequences of our own actions. Dangerous climate change is a threat, not a pre-ordained fact of life. We can choose to confront and eliminate that threat, or we can choose to let it evolve into a fully fledged crisis for poverty reduction and for future generations.
