Do not ask for morality

Broome, John

Description

Each of us ought to avoid emitting greenhouse gas. We have a moral duty not to harm other people, and particularly not to do so for our own benefit. The greenhouse gas we emit spreads around the world and contributes to global warming, which is harmful. Emitting greenhouse gas harms people by this means, so morality requires us not to do it.
