Coupled Ethical-Epistemic Issues in the Climate Sciences

Nancy Tuana portraitNancy Tuana is part of a collaborative research team at Penn State whose focus has included: developing a more robust model of research ethics that more adequately reflects the impacts of ethical issues in scientific practice; examining the impact of including ethical uncertainty in global climate change integrated assessment modeling (IAM) with the goal of using this new IAM to address how uncertainty about potential climate threshold responses and future ethical value judgments affects the choice of efficient climate risk management strategies; and a research project that includes ethical analysis in modeling concerning sea-level rise due to global climate change.  (http://rockethics.psu.edu/bios/tuana.shtml)
