Post-Copenhagen Climate Ethics
I wrote this longer post in February 2010 as an effort to derive simple ethical rules that might guide climate policy discussions in the aftermath of the COP15 conference in Copenhagen, December 2009.

I added three more, yielding six sets of ethical criteria in my effort to incorporate both the determination of just and adequate ends and the means to achieve those ends.
