The best science we have available allows us to know the foreseeable impacts and effects of global warming. The precautionary principle encourages us to take strong action on this issue, but at internship we continue to act as if "nothing is happening". The session aims to show, on the one hand, the scientific instructions of this problem and, on the other hand, its ethical implications, in short, what consequences should be derived from the current knowledge at our disposal.
