An examination of the United States' responses to global warming negotiations through an ethical lens. The text's conclusions are often harshly critical of those responses over the last decade and a half of the 20th century. In fact, it concludes that many of the United States' positions in global climate change negotiations are ethically bankrupt no matter what ethical theory is used in the analysis. The volume claims that because there is so much at stake - because the poorest people around the world are likely to suffer most from human-induced climate change, and because the USA is the largest producer of greenhouse gases and has been least willing to reverse the global warming threat - the United States' response to global warming is problematic.
