About this book

The ice in the Arctic is melting. Nowhere on earth can the changes in our climate be seen as clearly as here. What is happening? Are we heading for a catastrophe, or is this only a problem for polar bears and walruses? How will a warmer Arctic affect living conditions for people in Polynesia and Micronesia? What are our responsibilities as individuals in this situation?

Ice is Melting aims to extend your knowledge about climate, and simultaneously invites you to reflect on the ethical issues involved. We discuss climate ethics as an important concept, and hope readers will find Ice is Melting inspiring and provocative.

The authors of Ice is Melting represent a wide range of professions within academia, management, the media, natural science, the church, and museums. We share a belief in dialogue and cooperation. The climate crisis challenges us to work together across disciplinary, professional, and national boundaries.
