Tell everyone a little about yourself and what you hope to gain from the Global Ethics Network.
I am the Gifted Education Coordinator at Upper St. Clair High School near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Prior to my many years in Gifted, I taught International Baccalaureate French, Social Studies, and Astronomy. As one of the NASA Teacher-in-Space finalists, I have been very involved with space education over the years and have a particular interest in international relations related to space exploration. I have also been involved in coaching and evaluating International Future Problem Solving throughout my teaching career. Many of the topics we deal with in Future Problem Solving (climate change, world hunger, pandemic) require consideration of ethics at the international level. I am excited to learn more about the resources and ideas/insights available through the Global Ethics Network.

We are already living with climate change; and although countries have pledged to limit global warming to 2 °C, success seems highly unlikely. This panel explores how to advance ethical leadership on climate justice globally, nationally, and locally in the years ahead. Topics include the Paris Agreement and commitments going forward, geoengineering governance, the problems in California, and the creative ways the Seychelles are coping.
Every capitalist economy struggles with how to come to terms with greed, says John Paul Rollert, an expert on the intellectual history of capitalism. He describes how our perspective has changed from the Christian view of greed as an unalloyed sin, to the 18th century idea that it could bring positive benefits, to the unabashed "Greed is good" ethos in the movie "Wall Street." Where do we stand now? How can we rehabilitate capitalism?
