Abstract
The essay aims to discuss the issue of climate change. I will focus on Bangladesh, a county vulnerable to environmental hazards due to its geographical location. I have clarified how climate change may affect a country like Bangladesh and how the environmental issues are connected to human rights violations.

The essay aims to discuss the issue of climate change. I will focus on Bangladesh, a county vulnerable to environmental hazards due to its geographical location. I have clarified how climate change may affect a country like Bangladesh and how the environmental issues are connected to human rights violations. To problematize the issue of climate change further have I looked into the matter of justice and responsibility through the views of two ethicists, Peter Singer and John Rawls. Peter Singer is a utilitarian philosopher whom focuses on the matter of the unequal distribution of global resources. He presents two concrete action plans to how to deal with the climate changes. John Rawls thoughts about justice are connected to a hypothetical contract among parts in the society, when they all shall agree without knowing their own social status in the society. This discussion between the two views will be a central part of the essay.
I will complete the paper with an ending discussion around how to define the question of responsibility and how the state's responsibility to uphold human rights is associated with a changed environment situation. The purpose of this paper has therefore been to examine how the changing environmental situation affects a country like Bangladesh. I have also examined how the role of government influenced the current environmental debate. (Less)
