Climate change poses the first universal crisis of our planet; an urgent crisis, which demands urgent and universal policy. This paper analyzes both the universalist theory, which underlies universal policy, as well as the concepts of culture and cultural difference, which have been used to subvert prior universal policy, namely the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Vienna Declaration.
