    The NET effect: negative emissions technologies and the need-efficiency trade-off
    (Cambridge University Press, 2023-02-22) Mintz-Woo, Kian
    When developing and deploying negative emissions technologies (NETs), little attention has been paid to where. On the one hand, one might develop NETs where they are likely to contribute most to global mitigation targets, contributing to a global climate solution. On the other hand, one might develop NETs where they can help support development on a regional basis, justified by regional demands. I defend these arguments and suggest that they reflect the values of efficiency and responding to need, respectively. To the extent that these values conflict, they introduce what I call the Need-Efficiency Trade-off Effect (‘NET Effect’).

    Ostensive communication, market exchange, mindshaping, and elephants
    (Canbridge University Press, 2023-02-17) Ross, Don
    Heintz & Scott-Phillips's hypothesis that the topic range and type diversity of human expressive communication gains support from consilience with prior accounts of market exchange as fundamental to unique human niche construction, and of mindshaping as much more important than mindreading. The productivity of the idea is illustrated by the light it might shed on why elephants seem to engage in continuous social communication for little evident purpose.

    How climate winners may actually help climate justice
    (Public Library of Science, 2023-02-02) Leroux, Justin; Mintz-Woo, Kian
    We believe that climate winners have a part to play in redressing the inequalities brought about by climate change - indeed, we think some of their winnings are not legitimate because they were unearned, lucky windfalls. But the matter must be considered carefully. First, we do not claim that all climate gains are illegitimate, meaning that climate justice does not warrant confiscating all climate gains wholesale. Next, and perhaps somewhat unintuitively (at first), we argue that some of the illegitimate gains should be transferred to polluters -that is the unintuitive part - while the rest should be used to compensate those harmed by climate change.

    Sara Protasi: The Philosophy of Envy, Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2021. Hardback (ISBN 978-1-316-51917-2), £75. 260 pp
    (Springer, 2022-05-19) Montes Sánchez, Alba
    Envy is a complex and intriguing emotion that has received too little philosophical attention in recent years. Sara Protasi has come to remedy that gap with an original, thorough and carefully researched monograph that defends the view that envy is not all vicious, that one of its varieties can be fully virtuous, and that it plays an important role in our moral psychology.
