Philosophy professor to present at climate change conference

Submitted by Teresa Zerbe

Jon Herington, assistant professor of philosophy, will deliver a paper, "Extreme Climate Risks and the Value of Security," at the Economic and Social Research Council Workshop on Climate Ethics and Climate Economics Sept. 13-15 at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

Herington shows that of the three standard accounts of justice, individual security turns out to be an important and distinct consideration in justifying climate policy.
