APPLYING DECOLONIAL PERSPECTIVES TO CLIMATE ETHICS An inquiry into the use of management approaches in climate ethics
MetadataShow full item record
In this inquiry two parts of the climate ethical debate have been analyzed. These are the views of climate ethicists who see merit in management approaches and ethicists that do not. It is argued that these two opposing views can be reconciled to outline one project of ethically just mitigation. Furthermore, decolonial thinking is used to address epistemic problems that arise when employing management approaches. Drawing upon these problems, decolonial thinking has been used to set prerequisites for social justice that contribute to the construction of a successful mitigation project. In this work I have argued for regarding managerial climate ethics and non-managerial climate ethics to be different temporal goals of the same project. Decolonial thinking is used to show the necessity of attributing managerial climate ethics only a short-term role in this project, whilst non-managerial constitute the long-term aim.
