13 Th is will hit its agricultural sector very heavily and, as such, severely threatens the Bangladesh economy which is heavily dependent on its agriculture. Houghton records, for example, that “half the country’s economy comes from agriculture and eighty-five per cent of the nation’s population depends on agriculture for its livelihood. ”14 In addition to the fact that the global poor tend to earn their living in ways which are more exposed to the ill effects of global climate change, it also bears noting that the global poor are likely to be disproportionately at risk for a further reason: namely they are more at risk from diseases like malaria and cholera.

However, global climate change raises questions of inter-generational justice in two distinct ways. First, the ill effects of the high greenhouse gas emissions of current generations will often be borne by future generations. Second, part of the problem facing current and future generations arises because of the policies of past generations. As such we, and future people, inherit problems caused by others. Let us refer to this third challenge – that is, the challenge of ensuring that a theory of justice can deal with the inter-generational aspects of global climate change – the third extension (E-3).

First, the ill effects of global climate change will be felt predominantly by the poor. In the fi rst place many of the global poor are employed in industries, such as agriculture, which would suffer from drought. To give another example, climate change will result in raised sea-levels which 24 s. caney will, in turn, adversely affect the inhabitants of Bangladesh. According to Sir John Houghton, if sea levels rise by fi ft y cm then ten per cent of Bangladesh’s habitable land will be lost to the sea and with that 6 million Bangladeshis; and if sea levels rise by one metre then twenty per cent of the land will be lost and 15 million would be affected.
