A paper I’ve co-written with Anders Sandberg (Oxford) and Rebecca Roache (Oxford) entitled “Human Engineering and Climate Change” has been selected by Ethics, Policy, and Environment to be a Target Article for their next issue. The abstract of our paper is as follows:

Buffalo Workshop on Ethics and Adaptation: environmental ethics and policy when the future does not resemble the past

An event to be held 10-11 March 2012 at the University at Buffalo.

In light of the changes we can expect to see as a result of climate change, there is a need, recognizable in recent work in policy, law, and ethics, to reconsider both the ethical norms relevant to our changing world and the forms of justification provided for those norms. The Buffalo workshop on Ethics and Adaptation will provide a venue for beginning to address this need. This workshop will bring together philosophers, policy scholars, and others working on issues related to ethics, adaptation, and sustainability in light of a rapidly changing environment.

Owing to some clerical error, this job is not in the JFP (Jobs for Philosophers) yet. Do let anyone you think would be suitable know about this position. Thanks!
