Thesis: 'What can the values and goods lost to climate change tell us about climate policy?'

Climate change is likely to lead to the loss of or damage to a wide range of potential values and potentially valuable things, including the wellbeing of current and future humans, the lives of animals and plants, biodiversity, and the biosphere as we know it. This project seeks to map these values and their characteristics, and study how proposed climate policies such as bioengineering and adaptation interact with them.
