Climate Ethics Public Symposium Part 1: Clark Wolf

2011-09-19 by

The Climate Ethics Works-in-Progress Conference hosted a free, public symposium Sept. 8, 2011, asking four senior philosophers to engage the question, “How should we think about climate change?”

First up that evening was Clark Wolf, Director of Bioethics and a professor in both philosophy and political science at Iowa State University. In his talk, he encourages us to consider framing the question of climate change between our generation and future generations as a problem of justice. When we don’t meet our obligations of justice, he argues, we create victims, and they can seek remedy. He asks us tobe accountable for our environmental debt to future generations.

This talk was recorded on Sept. 8, 2011.
