Climate Ethics Conference: Philosopher Bryan Norton on devising an environmental decision-making process that brings all interests to the table

2011-09-07 by

Philosopher Bryan Norton has been studying sustainability for decades. His concern for the well-being of future generations led him to build upon Aldo Leopold’s ecosystem perspective. What we need to sustain our planet, he says, is a decision-making process that accommodates ALL values—human, environmental and economic.

Norton is one of four philosophers on the symposium panel Sept. 8 at 7:30 p.m. in LIB 307, answering the question: How should we think about climate change?
