This research paper takes up the issue of climate change debate and tries to link it with human rights and morality. This will help analyze and steer climate policy measures from moral stand-point. There are hidden ethical dilemmas in climate crisis debate which needs to be answered. The present climate diplomacy is not going in this direction and therefore no concrete results are see on paper as well as in practice. The reports of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (hereinafter IPCC) which are treated as “gold standards” for climate policymakers have been lacking in depicting the “known unknown” and “unknown unknown” effects of climate change. Apart from that, the solutions presently offered are satisfy neither morality angle nor provide basic human rights to all.
