Plant Minds: A Philosophical Defense

2017.12.09 : View this Review Online | View Recent NDPR Reviews Chauncey Maher, Plant Minds: A Philosophical Defense, Routledge, 2017, 131 pp., $70.00 (hbk), ISBN 9781138739192. Reviewed by Colin Allen, University of Pittsburgh What do you know about plants? You might not be surprised to hear that plants account for much more of the planet's biomass than animals -- hundreds of times more, in some estimates. You may, however, be surprised to learn that the number of plant species is relatively small compared to the number of animal species. It is an interesting question why plants have not diversified as much as animals have, but perhaps their immobility accounts for it. Nevertheless, with somewhere in the range of 300,000 to 400,000 species (estimates vary widely), there is plenty enough diversity among plants to yield some very interesting adaptations, from communication to carnivory. The details of such adaptations are... Read More

Goethe was an uninhibited pagan who boasted of his "pretty wild life" and knowledge of girls. Yet he didn't have sex until he was nearly 40. What gives?

The Ethics of Climate Engineering: Solar Radiation Management and Non-Ideal Justice

2017.12.10 : View this Review Online | View Recent NDPR Reviews Toby Svoboda, The Ethics of Climate Engineering: Solar Radiation Management and Non-Ideal Justice, Routledge, 2017, 176pp., $140.00, ISBN 9781138204836. Reviewed by Corey Katz, The Ohio State University Solar radiation management (SRM) names a suite of large-scale, intentional climate engineering techniques whose purpose is to reflect a small proportion of incoming solar radiation back into space. This leads to less solar energy entering or remaining in the atmosphere, which in turn leads to a decrease in global average temperature. Much attention has focused, for example, on the possibility of emitting reflective sulfate aerosols into the atmosphere that would artificially cool the planet. While the technology is still in the research stage, SRM has the potential to both relatively quickly and comparatively cheaply lessen or halt global warming. This has made its deployment both attractive and. . .
