The Ethical Scientist!
If I asked you what comes to mind when I say “ethical living,” inevitably wildly diverse answers would ensue. Maybe an ecologist or adventurer would think about sustainable living or leave-no-trace. Maybe as a scientist, we think of our ethics course that emphasizes falsification of scientific data. Maybe we would think of politics or culture, racial or sexual equality, or maybe human or animal rights. Here, I want to take a deep dive into some of the ethical dilemmas that I face as a scientist and as a human on this planet.
These are my experiences and thoughts as an aspiring, adapting, metaphorically evolving Ethical Scientist.
