Paul T. Babie (Adeliade) has posted Climate Change and the Concept of Private Property, forthcoming in REVELLING IN THE WILDS OF CLIMATE CHANGE LAW, Rosemary Lyster, ed., Australian Academic Press: Brisbane. The abstract:
This essay argues that the dominant liberal conception of private property, implemented and operating in legal systems worldwide, permits power - or choice - over the use and control of goods and resources so as to prioritise self-interest over obligation towards the community, both local and global. This, in turn, is one of the components of modern social life making possible the complex processes that produce both anthropogenic climate change and its consequences for humanity.
