AbstractGiven that mitigating climate change is a large-scale global issue, what obligations do individuals have to lower their personal carbon emissions? IThe authorsurveys recent suggestions by Walter Sinnott-Armstrong and Dale Jamieson and offer models for thinking about their respective approaches. She then presents a third model based on the notion of structural violence. While the three models are not mutually incompatible, each one suggests a different focus for mitigating climate change.
