This opinion paper on climate change published in the International Journal of Information Management argues that climate change might well be the most important issue of the 21st century and that the world’s response, in the form of ‘Climate Engineering’, is of equal pre-eminent importance. Besides the technological challenges that Climate Engineering generates, the authors highlight the equally important ethical challenges it is likely to raise. Based on the findings of the TechEthos project, they highlight autonomy, freedom, integrity, human rights and privacy as key considerations, while noting a poverty of ethical values reflecting dignity and trust.
