Over the last 30 years predictions of climate change as a threat to individuals, societies and nations have changed from possibilities to realities. Ethical issues associated with which individuals, companies, nations cause climate change, who might benefit from it, and who will suffer from the impacts have been part of the discussion from the beginning. How has thinking about the ethics of climate change evolved during that time and how does this relate to the ethics of extreme mitigation efforts like climate engineering? Margaret Leinen, PhD, UC San Diego Vice Chancellor for Marine Sciences, Director of Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and Dean of the School of Marine Sciences discusses what can be done, what is being done, and the ethical implications of deploying solutions.

Food waste in the United States is at an all-time high. More than 40 percent of all edible food is tossed out each year and half of that is fresh but slightly imperfect produce. What to do? A panel of experts convened by Kitchens for Good and the Berry Good Food Foundation explores how to reverse this trend by connecting suppliers with those who will benefit most from increased access to healthy foods. This is the third of four programs presented by the Future Thought Leaders series.
