If claims about which character traits are environmental virtues are to be more than rhetoric, there must be some basis or standard for evaluation. This naturalistic, teleological, pluralistic, and inclusive account of what makes a character trait an environmental virtue can be such a standard. It is naturalistic because it is consistent with and motivated by scientific naturalism.
The US is an increasingly urban country. As a consequence of this, generations of children are growing up having had limited to no contact with the natural world. We now have a need to stay within a 2 degrees Celcius limit if we are to avoid disastrous effects. As well as reducing emission, negative emission could be possible through methods such as reforestation.

Philosophy Environmental Ethics Environmental Science Colorado College Ben Bayer Fall , Block 2 Course description A majority of Americans describe themselves as environmentalists, but there is less agreement about what it means to be an environmentalist. Most understand it to mean some kind of concern for nature, but few explicitly articulate what kind of concern they mean, or what kind of reasons are supposed to prompt this concern. This course will focus on exploring and evaluating the meaning and rationale for this concern, under the guidance of contemporary ethical and meta-ethical theory.
