This chapter discusses the conditions that make some very narrow set of mitigation projects permissible, in an effort to determine and describe what those conditions might be. Currently, arguments for and against environmental remediation have tended to focus on mitigation of harms while ignoring moral considerations. The problem for this chapter should be contextualized as part of a much larger set of questions oriented around addressing concerns in climate change mitigation and environmental remediation. The chapter aims to prove that what makes an engineering project permissible is whether all affected parties can accept not only the side effects of the project but also the legitimacy of the project itself.

Keywords:   mitigation projects, environmental remediation, mitigation of harms, moral considerations, climate change mitigation
