Stephen Schneider and the "Double Ethical Bind" of Climate Change Communication
Russill, Chris
Bulletin of Science, Technology & Society, v30 n1 p60-69 2010
Stephen Schneider's perspective on climate change communication is distinguished by its longevity, a keen anticipation of research findings, historical understanding, and grounding in first-person experience. In this article, the author elaborates Schneider's work in terms of its key claims, suggestive research directions, and lessons for scientists, journalists, and citizens. This article also evaluates his "double ethical bind" formulation to discuss potential limitations regarding precautionary policy. In conclusion, the author suggests that Schneider's work has been important for advancing a robust precautionary perspective for climate change, but that it may be insufficient for carrying this perspective through to fuller expression.
