Few months ago in a seminar that I’ve attended, I heard a lecturer say, “Disaster becomes a disaster when there are humans involved in it.” Several earthquakes and volcano eruptions happen every day around the world, and it seems that only few of them receive a true public spotlight. Always, news of earthquakes and volcano eruptions happen to have thousands of civilian casualties, with its number increasing as media’s live coverage continues day by day. Have we ever paid attention on natural…Continue

The arguments made here are an extension of a broader paper that aimed (unsuccessfully) to discuss the issue of euthanasia from the perspective of three different ethic theories (Peter Singer, Immanuel Kant, Consequentialist) and relate it to global ethics and the question of global justice.

It's a fact of life. Unless it's at your doorstep, it's not a priority.
I wonder if after Sandy's rage last week there's still doubt that climate change is a national security issue? The super storm was caused by the warm up of the Caribbean.
