This article considers the attention which is increasingly afforded to human rights norms in the attempt to highlight the challenges facing humankind as a result of climate change. It analyses the links between legal responses to climate change and human rights and argues that certain connections exist between the two. This is particularly the case in domestic settings. At the same time, a number of significant limitations exist which are likely to hamper the use of human rights law in climate change settings.
