This coming week I will be taking a quick drive up to Boulder, Colorado, to attend the Rocky Mountain Ethics (RoME) Conference starting on Thursday. The conference was organized by Dr. Ben Hale, graduate director at the Environmental Studies department at CU Boulder, who has written some very interesting work in environmental ethics. Recently he wrote a chapter critiquing the ambiguity and vagueness of ethical objections to using geoengineering as a climate change mitigation tool — some of the objections he addresses are reminiscent of the Jevons Paradox. You can find the full paper here or just read the abstract here.
More to come soon from RoME!
