Because climate change threatens human welfare across the globe, in both near and distant future, we need a philosophical concept of well-being that reflects such a large scope. This article discusses which concept of well-being that yields moral obligations across generations most efficiently. The concept of well-being argued for will also have something specific to say about methods used in climate economy and the concept of sustainable development.
