Moral Community in a Global World

This week's readings focus on questions of "moral community" in this global era. Our class discussion last week began to scrutinize what might be entailed by the idea of a "global society," but I want to push you to draw out the themes of our readings on this point along two lines.First, to what extent are moral obligations blind to social and geographic considerations (e.g. do moral agents have equal responsibilities to those nearby and those far away? Do moral agents have equal…See More

The Changing Conversation on Climate

Posted on June 25, 2013 at 2:30pm 0 Comments

Many Americans have long waited for the President to clarify and deepen his position on how the United States should move forward on climate change. In the years since the George W. Bush administration abandoned the Kyoto Protocol, American engagement on the issue has been uneven, and voters have been only episodically motivated by concerns about Hurricanes Sandy and Katrina or about wildfires and droughts. President Obama's last-minute intervention in the United Nations Framework Convention…

More than 100,000 protesters turned out in both Rio and Sao Paolo, and estimates of 10,000-40,000 are also being reported in Belem and Salvador…

Hi, I am Jing Shiyuan from China. I am a junior student of East China University of Political Science and Law in Shanghai. My major is economic law and minor in finance. I'm interested in renewable energy law. And I do care about the environment protection and the mass conflicts caused by energy which leads to many severe problems.

I came to America 2 weeks ago with the China Future Leadership Programme and had the chance to know Professor Steve Kelman from Harvard and Professor Ronald McKinnon from Stanford. Recently we are discussing about the North Korean issues and China's dollar exchange rate through e-mails. 

I am a wild girl with great passions in almost everthing  and I really hope that I could communicate with you through e-mails. My e-mail address is jingshiyuan8@yahoo.com.cn.
