Monday, Apr. 9, 2012
By Richard Elgar, Foley Institute
PULLMAN, Wash. - "The Ethics of Global Climate Change” will be discussed by a panel of WSU and other experts 4:30-6 p.m. Thursday, April 12, in Todd 276, co-sponsored by the WSU Foley Institute and Department of Politics, Philosophy and Public Affairs.
Should you trust experts who claim the data support dire predictions for our future? Are some attempts to address the causes and implications of climate change ethically flawed? Is adopting nuclear energy a good policy option for controlling emissions? How much risk can we take on? What do we owe to future generations and the planet we will leave them?
These and other questions will be considered by: Bill Kabasenche, WSU Department of Politics, Philosophy and Public Affairs; Kent Keller, WSU School of Earth and Environmental Sciences; Andrew Light, director of international climate policy, Center for American Progress; Gene Rosa, WSU Department of Sociology.
