Climate change is full of moral questions. These questions have been addressed by different scholars in recent years. Meanwhile, ‘climate ethics’ is an established sub-discipline within practical philosophy. This field aims both at critical reflection but also at moral orientation for climate policy making. The article gives an overview on the topics of current climate ethics. It addresses mitigation, adaptation, and the prospects of different types of geo-engineering. Within the domain of adaptation, some remarks on agriculture are made. The article argues for an enlarged and refined concept of ‘contraction and convergence’ which should guide international climate policies.
