  1. Ian A. Smith (2013). On Explaining Individual and Corporate Culpability in the Global Climate Change Era. Journal of Business Ethics 112 (4):551-558.
    Humans are causing global climate change (GCC), and such climate change causes harms. Robin Attfield explained how individuals should be understood to be culpable for these harms.

    Environmental groups have worked tirelessly to save several species of endangered fish along the Colorado River, including the humpback chub (Gila cypha). The humpback chub does not seem to have any significant instrumental goods, but these environmentalists have championed its cause nonetheless.
