Abstract

Is there a human right to a particular environment, one that overrides conflicting human interests? Given that all humans require a particular environment in order to survive and thereby have interests, the question seems to answer itself. Assuming, then, that there is a right to a particular environment, what does that environment look like? In this Dialogue, Prof. Jan Laitos, Juliana E. Okulski, and I join the growing number of voices urgently working to describe the human right to a particular environment.

Keywords: environment, climate, population, procreation
