Virtue ethics on Radio National, feat. Stanley Hauerwas [audio & transcript]
Resonding to a comment by Lynton, here is a start at defining what ‘stewardliness’ means in the area of global warming. If one accepts the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change’s (UNFCCC) objective* of “the stabilization of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous** anthropogenic interference with the climate system”, and their figure of 2 degrees C as the maximum allowable global average temperature increase over pre-industrial levels, then stewardliness means working in whatever circles one has authority over or influence in to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We all at least have some authority over our own lives, and possibly also over a household, or business unit, or church etc etc.
