The Problem of Climate Change: A Study of Anthropocentric Environmental Ethics

Okoye Chuka A.


Climate change is a change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns over a  long period of time ranging from decades to millions of years. It is also seen as a change in average weather condition, or statistical properties of the climate system when considered over a long period of time. This usually is caused by excessive carbon dioxide emission in the atmosphere and thus leads to extreme unpalatable weather condition such as excessive heat. It is clear that the human activities in the world through industrialization and other careless environmentally unfriendly actions contribute much this problem. The question here is: how can this problem be managed in this contemporary world of industrialization? This paper proceeds to make recommendations to this through an anthropocentric ethics of environment suggesting a more human centered approach to industrialization as a means to managing the problem.
