Abstract"Release of greenhouse gases from burning of various fossil fuels like coal, oil and natural gas gases increase the global temperature by trapping the reflected and outgoing long wave heat radiation from the terrestrial region which ultimately result in the global warming and ultimately the earth???s climate. Other human activities, such as cutting down forests, and growing rice, and raising cattle, add to this effect. Global warming and rapid climate change could result in disastrous effects. A large or fast change in climate will have a big effect on plants and animals in the natural environment. The economics of climate change need to be discussed in terms of ethical perspectives to overcome the social impacts. The present paper highlights the general concept of global warming and climate change and explains ecomomic aspects related to climate change with ethical perspectives after highlighting the issues of global warming and climate change, their major causes, consequences and some suggestions to reduce these effects."
