soccer moms pose ethical dilemma

Peter Singer warmly endorses Dale Jamieson's new book on environmentalism and ethics:

'The “soccer mom” who drives her kids to sporting events and music lessons seems to be a model of virtue – yet she and millions of other equally virtuous people are, collectively, bringing about climate change. To take account of these large collective-action problems, we need a radically new set of virtues.'
