When big scientific questions meet big ethical questions, the waters can get pretty choppy. In ScienceWhys, Lisa Heldke, philosopher and director of the Nobel Conference at Gustavus Adolphus College, interviews scientists, researchers, scholars and thinkers about how science and ethics mingle, eddy, roil and churn in their own work.
In this episode of ScienceWhys, I talk with Lisa Heldke about the idea of climate change, the changing ways I have studied climate change through my career, and the relationship between the sciences and the humanities for understanding the types of challenges that climate change presents to societies.

You can view here my talk, ‘Beyond Climate Solutionism’, to the 2019 Nobel Conference on Climate Change at Gustavus Adolphus College.
