Confronting Climate Change in a Perfect Moral Storm - Other - Vereinigte Staaten

Date: 18.04.2023, 15:00-16:00h
Location: Online Event
Garrison, NY
Vereinigte Staaten
Keywords: Ecology
Details: In this final event in the Bioethics with Bigger Impact series, Nancy Tuana, Dupont/Class of 1949 Professor of Philosophy and Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies, Penn State University, and Stephen Gardiner, Professor of Philosophy and Ben Rabinowitz Endowed Professor of the Human Dimensions of the Environment, University of Washington will sort through these questions with Romy Opperman, Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow and Assistant Professor-designate, Dept. of Philosophy, New School for Social Research. Are ethicists asleep at the wheel in protecting planetary health? Global warming is intertwined with persistent problems of social justice, systemic racism, the U.S. history of colonial oppression, and the dominance of capitalist consumer norms over health and health care. Why are these bioethical injustices? Why are these issues still not a central concern for many? How can ethicists contribute to policy decisions and health and technological innovation to respond to the urgent challenges of climate change and environmental injustice?
