Abstract

The Kyoto Protocol and the UNFCCC is the natural starting point for a new climate regime that must be established.

Through a literature analysis of the International Environmental Politics, regarding climate change justice, this essay analyzes how various justice principle are being interpreted and used to suggest climate justice solutions to a post-Kyoto Protocol. A theoretical analysis of retributive and distributive justice leads the way into the actual climate suggestions where these and other forms of justice are being applied, directly or indirectly, to post-Kyoto Protocol suggestions. This is followed by an analysis of grandfathering, per capita, historical responsibility and carbon intensity suggestions.

The conclusion of this analysis indicates that there is not only one viable option but a multitude of options; ?hybrid? suggestions standing the best chance to unite nations around the world, as they offer something to all parties. (Less)
