Ashford 2: – Week 1 – Discussion 2

The Justice of Climate Change


   In Chapter 1 of your textbook, the author identifies the possible causes and   consequences of global warming/climate change as emerging issues loaded with   implications for justice. He also analyzes the concepts of distributive   justice, commutative justice, and retributive justice and suggests their   relevance to conversations about how individuals, businesses, and nations   should respond justly to evidence of global warming. These conversations are   made more difficult by acrimonious debates about the quality of the   scientific evidence that supports global warming hypotheses as well as the   motives and integrity of various scientists on both sides of the issue. “Case   Study 1.4 – Getting Warmer?” illustrates this problem.

  Familiarize yourself with the debate highlighted in Case Study 1.4 by   reviewing the required resources for this discussion. Then apply concepts of   distributive justice, commutative justice, and retributive justice to answer   the following questions. How should the concept of        distributive justice influence the response of the United States to        evidence of global warming? Why? How should the concept of        commutative justice influence your response, as an individual, to evidence        of global warming? Why? How should the concept of        retributive justice influence governmental and individual responses to        business activities which emit substantial amounts of carbon dioxide and        other “greenhouse gases.” Why?

   Your initial post should be at least 300 words in length and should fully   respond to all parts of the question. Support your claims with examples from   the required resources and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite   any references. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7   whose viewpoints are different from yours. Each peer response must be at   least 125 words. Stimulate critical thinking by contrasting your perspective   with your classmate’s and explaining yours, or by asking your classmate a   question and explaining why your question is significant.
