Abstract: Human rights arguments are increasingly being made, and human rights remedies increasingly being sought, in climate change litigation. While relatively few cases have been argued on human rights grounds so far, the trend is continuing and accelerating, with some striking results. However, human rights remedies offer little, if any, compensatory relief for the impacts of climate change, and few means to deter further harm. So why use them?
