Many human activities are responsible for causing these climate changes which raises questions about moral agency of human beings. There is much evidence currently available which suggests that the climate system is exposed to excessive warming. Rapid industrialization and urbanization have drastically modified the climate system of the earth in a negative sense. These climate changes are considered unprecedented and have been caused by human activities like the release of poisonous gases in the air. In order to become a moral agent in the face of climate change, it is important for every person to develop a newfound respect for environmental sustainability. This can be a very positive change for a person like me doing major in marketing because before long, focus in the field of marketing used to be concentrated only on creating beneficial relationships with consumers, but environmental awareness stresses on building a relationship with the climate also. Currently, there is a looming prospect of unsustainable environmental future because many young professionals have no idea what sustainability really is and how environment or climate can be made sustainable.
In my plan for moral agency in the face of climate change in the next 5-10 years of my life, I would really like to incorporate the concept of neighbor-love. I am here talking about the kind of neighbor-love that goes beyond human parts of God’s creation as suggested by Moe-Lobeda in chapter 9. The scope of Moe-Lobeda’s version of neighbor-love is really wide because it encompasses both human and non-human parts. I aim to base my plan on this version of neighbor-love because it will better enable me to become a good moral agent. A scope of neighbor-love that includes both humans and non-humans makes for a principal component of a moral plan. Now, I will like to explain how neighbor-love can help in becoming a moral agent in the face of climate change.
