Through their use of natural resources, presently living people will affect the conditions under which future people will live. This raises questions of intergenerational as well as global justice: What do presently living people owe future generations, in particular, which natural resources, with the policy options they allow, should remain available to future generations (and to what extent)? Who among the presently living should bear what costs of fulfilling the duties towards future generations? Further, it is particularly the industrialized countries of the global North who have caused the problem of climate change, in part because of the fact that the process of industrialization came with increasing levels of emissions. At the same time, the harmful effects of climate change will be felt disproportionately by developing countries (particularly those in the global South), who have benefited far less from industrialization. Do OECD countries and their citizens therefore stand under special duties towards the victims of climate change in the global South?
