Steve's current research focuses on global environmental problems (especially climate change), future generations, and Aristotelian virtue ethics.
Steve is the author of A Perfect Moral Storm: the Ethical Tragedy of Climate Change (Oxford University Press, 2011), a co-editor of Climate Ethics: Essential Readings (Oxford University Press, 2011), and the editor of Virtue Ethics: Old and New (Cornell University Press, 2005).
He has also published more than twenty articles, on topics as diverse as climate ethics, geoengineering, precaution in international law, nuclear protection, Aristotle’s doctrine of the unity of the virtues, and Socrates’ pessimism about politics. Many of these have appeared in leading journals in the field, such as Ethics, Environmental Values, the Journal of Political Philosophy, Oxford Studies in Ancient Philosophy, and Philosophy and Public Affairs. Several of his articles have also been reprinted in standard textbooks and other anthologies.
Steve’s work has been cited by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the National Research Council’s report on America’s Climate Choices, and the U.K. Treasury’s Stern Review on the Economics of Climate Change. In recent years, Steve has been invited to present his work at conferences and workshops in the United States, United Kingdom, Norway, France, Belgium, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and Australia. He has also been interviewed by National Public Radio, the Seattle Times, the Sunday Times (of London), the Washington Post, and the Weather Channel.
