Climate Legislation:
Do California and Britain Offer Global Models?

Book Talk with Martin Bunzl

Martin Bunzl is a professor of philosophy at Rutgers University. He has served as Director for the Rutgers Initiative on Climate and Social Policy and Senior Scholar at the Van Leer Institute in Jerusalem. He is the author or editor of five books and numerous scholarly articles.

About the book: When it comes to climate change, the greatest difficulty we face is that we do not know the likely degree of change or its cost, which means that environmental policy decisions have to be made under uncertainty. This book offers an accessible philosophical treatment of the broad range of ethical and policy challenges posed by climate change uncertainty. Drawing on both the philosophy of science and ethics, Martin Bunzl shows how tackling climate change revolves around weighing our interests now against those of future generations, which requires that we examine our assumptions about the value of present costs versus future benefits. Bunzl examines climate policy in Washington, Beijing, London, Trenton, and Sacramento, basing his study on interviews with local politicians.
