Equality. What is it? How do we impact it as a society? In this talk Professor Jeremy Moss takes us on a journey throughout the world in order to understand equality and the threats we pose to it as a society. From money as an inequality to the effects of Green house gases, to even the smallest of factors, these all impact upon us and the equality we obtain.

Professor Moss’s main research interests are in political philosophy and applied philosophy. Current research interests include projects on: climate justice, the ethics of renewable energy as well as the ethical issues associated with unconventional gas and fossil fuel exports. He leads the Climate Justice Research program at UNSW and has published several books including: Reassessing Egalitarianism, Climate Change and Social Justice, and Climate Change and Justice (Cambridge University Press). He is the recipient of the Eureka Prize for Ethics, the Australasia Association of Philosophy Media Prize and several Australian Research Council Grants.
