The most “inconvenient truth” of all – and the most important: our moral responsibility for climate change.

Despite scientific evidence and pressure from grassroots movements, the threat of an ecological crisis has for a long time failed to achieve prominence in ecclesiastical or political circles. And yet it is one of the biggest moral dilemmas of our time. In this groundbreaking book Michael Northcott examines theological attitudes to climate change, from the complacent to the apocalyptic, and the ethical implications for all Christians. Hard-hitting and comprehensive, A Moral Climate is essential reading for anyone truly concerned about the greatest threat to our well being and the very lives of our children and grandchildren.

Michael Northcott Michael Northcott, a leading international ethicist, authored Environment and Christian Ethics, considered the definitive work in its field (Cambridge University Press). He is Reader in Christian Ethics at the University of Edinburgh and a Priest in the Scottish Episcopal Church.
