Supportive of the positive results that a distinct third generation human right to environment can offer, the paper argues that the key for this right's development and international recognition lies with the environment itself. Today, the biggest, most threatening environmental problem to humankind is the phenomenon of climate change or 'global warming.' Despite scientific controversies, awareness of and concern about the phenomenon promise to fill the gaps between the need for protecting the environment and the growing, yet still inadequate, human rights framework.
