This article was written in response ..., 31 Mar 2012 [cached]
This article was written in response to an editorial by Raymond Spier, editor of Science and Engineering Ethics.
The article then responds to several ethical claims made by Spier: (1) that climate change brings benefits in addition to costs (it does, but the costs are larger); (2) that society has better uses of its resources than addressing climate change (this is true only if we don't care about the future); and (3) that climate change is best addressed mainly through investment in new technology (this is a risky and indefensible strategy).
