Sunday Lecture: Flawed Ethics and Climate Change

Evan Parker and David Williams argue that flawed ethics has driven climate change presentation and policy into an unproductive cul-de-sac.


Evan will present the case that the root cause of the failure in climate change policy is the dubious ethics that have been employed in policy development and presentation. The international policy to minimise the impact of climate change is the targeted reduction of CO2 emissions. This policy is manifestly failing to achieve its defined objectives. The result could be global catastrophe.

The processes that take place in translating the complex science into policy will be addressed and a radically different approach is proposed. This would result in a new focus in dealing with climate change which, the speaker maintains, would achieve widespread endorsement and have significantly greater prospects of success.

Professor Evan Parker is at the Department of Physics, University of Warwick and have recently made a case for a new strategy for dealing with climate change to the Coalition Government’s Department of Energy and Climate Change.
