T16 Responses – Audio Transcript


As you know, we had two tracks last week, on animal rights and environmental rights. And this is my reply to your responses to the second of those.

I’ve tried to address all of the points you’ve made,. But there were many, and there are different routes to trying to understand the role of human rights in the field of environmental protection. I’ve tried to develop the various lines that are possible, before coming down on the side of something which is kind of ambitious –  and about which I suppose I’m slightly tentative, but which I intuit is central to our future on this planet.

So I hope you enjoy my responses to your comments – which were many and all fascinating – on this tricky and innovative field.
