Aiken, William. “Human Rights in an Ecological Era.” Environmental Values 1, no. 3, (1992): 191–203. doi:10.3197/096327192776680061.

After presenting a brief history of the idea of a human right to an adequate environment as it has evolved in the United Nations documents, William Aiken assesses this approach to our moral responsibility with regard to the environment. He argues that although this rights approach has some substantial weaknesses, these are outweighed by such clear advantages as its action-guiding nature and its political potency.
