    Anthropocentrism as the Scapegoat of the Environmental Crisis: A Review.Laÿna Droz - 2022 - Ethics in Science and Environmental Politics 22:25-49.
    Anthropocentrism has been claimed to be the root of the global environmental crisis. Based on a multidisciplinary and multilingual literature review, this article proposes a conceptual analysis of ‘anthropocentrism’ and reconstructs the often implicit argument that links anthropocentrism to the environmental crisis. The variety of usages of the concept of ‘anthropocentrism’ described in this article reveals many underlying disagreements under the apparent unanimity of the calls to reject anthropocentrism, both regarding what exactly is the root of the problem, and the (...)

    Bioethical Analysis of Sanitary Engineering: A Critical Assessment of the Profession at the Crossroads of Environmental and Public Health Ethics.Igor Eterović & Toni Buterin - 2022 - Ethics in Science and Environmental Politics 22:13-24.
    Sanitary engineering is burdened by several challenges that attract bioethical attention: there are many ambiguities regarding the definition of the profession; its methodology seems to be a combination of several approaches from different sciences; and it often appears to be an amalgam of different disciplines. We argue that the bioethical perspective helps to show that these features can be taken as a stimulating challenge. Moreover, bioethics may illuminate how these features can become an asset to sanitary engineering in light of (...)

    Ethics, Zoonoses, and Human-Nonhuman Conflict: Covid-19 and Beyond.Rebekah Humphreys, Rhyddhi Chakraborty & Nithin Varghese - 2022 - Ethics in Science and Environmental Politics 22:69-74.
    While the causes of human-animal conflict are numerous, many are intertwined with food production systems and the wildlife trade. The emergence and spread of Covid-19 exemplify this. Indeed, the wildlife population in South Asian countries has seen an increase in the risk of both human and nonhuman death in recent months, and as the economy slows, the search for food and extra income will intensify, negatively impacting wildlife. This paper aims to address some of the ethical issues concerning our treatment (...)

    Ethics and Risks in Sustainable Civilian Nuclear Energy Development in Vietnam.Lakshmy Naidu & Ravichandran Moorthy - 2022 - Ethics in Science and Environmental Politics 22:1-12.
    Vietnam is a vibrant and emerging South East Asian economy. However, the country faces a challenging task in meeting rising energy demand and the need to securitize energy while addressing the negative environmental impact of fossil fuel utilization. Growing concerns about sustainable development have led Vietnam to develop civilian nuclear energy for electricity generation. Nuclear power is widely recognized as a clean, mature and reliable energy source. Its inclusion in Vietnam’s energy mix by 2030 is expected to supplement other energy (...)

    Information and Misinformation About Climate Change: Lessons From Brazil.Heslley Machado Silva - 2022 - Ethics in Science and Environmental Politics 22:51-56.
    There is a growing movement in online social networks and within some governments to deny the long-established scientific consensus regarding climate change. Scientific research has shown that a series of climatic events in Latin America, and especially in Brazil, are being exacerbated by global warming. These events have had a profound impact on populations. Disruptions to Brazilian rainfall patterns with their devastating environmental and economic effects on agriculture have been directly linked with Amazonian deforestation. Furthermore, the Bolsonaro government, with its (...)
