Planetary hospice workers

April 25, 2008

The author Alastair McIntosh suggests that the right ethical response to climate change is to become “planetary hospice workers”. In the changed climate future, who will spend time with those most affected? Who, like those few wondrous people in the dark days of the plague will venture outside of their comfort and comfort those in need?

This is the great moral imperative of our times: will you sacrifice the possibility of a reasonably comfortable future and give yourself to those in need?
