Jeremy Moss (Director)

A research project from the University of New South Wales seeking to make accessible discussions of the justice-related issues that underpin an effective climate-change response. In their understanding, a climate transition needs to be based on the latest scientific knowledge about climate change, be the most cost-effective way to deal with it, and have wide support. They believe that a climate transition must be just, distributing any costs or benefits to the appropriate groups in the appropriate manner. The site is primarily concerned with the moral issues raised by climate change.
