A few years ago I wrote about work in progress on science, values, and climate change with my good friend, fellow UCSD alum, and brilliant philosopher of biology Joyce C. Havstad. I’ve excited to say that the fruits of our labors are finally seeing publication, with one article just out at the beginning of the year in Perspectives on Science and two more forthcoming later this year in a book on inductive risk and a special issue of PAQ, both edited by Kevin Elliott and Ted Richards.
