About this blog

  • Thinking Ethics was a project launched in Geneva to foster the debate about ethics. A few friends, fed up with only reading about abuses in the media, decided to hold a forward-looking seminar on five subjects: ethics and performance, ethics and knowledge, ethics and consciousness, ethics and disobedience and ethics in real time. If moral has to do with right and wrong, then ethics is its application in society. We believe that people need to talk about the subject to determine the level of ethics they want. The book Thinking Ethics, a result of the seminar, is to start the discussion. This blog is a contribution to the conversation.

morning Beth

Did I miss something? The problem lies in an ever increasing population producing methane etc. on it's own - see digestive tract and ! eating ever more meat. All this was described or insinuated in a book "the biological time bomb" sometime in the 70's. We have a 50 - 100 year lag in the CO2 case.

what are the effects of global warming

Hi there! thank you for the post. I never thought that eating beef has so much influence on global warming, but I don't think that there is much to do about it. I had a huge argument with a friend, (a very narrow minded friend I must say)about this subject - It is so hard to convince people about how serious the situation is.
