Steve is currently working on issues of environmental justice and future generations, especially as they concern global climate change. Recent work includes pieces on the ethics of geoengineering, responsibility for past emissions, climate change and human rights, nuclear protection, and the precautionary principle. Steve is the author of A Perfect Moral Storm: the Ethical Tragedy of Climate Change (Oxford, 2011), the coordinating co-editor of Climate Ethics: Essential Readings (Oxford, 2010), and the editor of Virtue Ethics: Old and New (Cornell, 2005). He is currently co-editing the Oxford Handbook on Environmental Ethics for Oxford University Press.
Currently I am working on the economics of climate change working at the intersection of energy, climate change, air pollution and traffic policies. I also study the economics of traffic policies to reduce the health impacts of air pollution. I wrote my PhD thesis on the econometric modeling of energy demand and I published a widely cited paper on using "Daylight Saving Time" as a tool for energy conservation.
