    Toward a Responsibility-Catering Prioritarian Ethical Theory of Risk.Lars Lindblom & Per Wikman-Svahn - 2019 - Science and Engineering Ethics 25 (3):655-670.
    Standard tools used in societal risk management such as probabilistic risk analysis or cost–benefit analysis typically define risks in terms of only probabilities and consequences and assume a utilitarian approach to ethics that aims to maximize expected utility. The philosopher Carl F. Cranor has argued against this view by devising a list of plausible aspects of the acceptability of risks that points towards a non-consequentialist ethical theory of societal risk management.

    Do We Have a Residual Obligation to Engineer the Climate, as a Matter of Justice?Patrik Baard & Per Wikman-Svahn - 2016 - In Christopher J. Preston (ed.), Climate Justice and Geoengineering: Ethics and Policy in the Atmospheric Anthropocene. London, Storbritannien:
    This article investigates whether geoengineering can be justified as a residual obligation given that demands related to mitigating emissions of greenhouse gases are left unfulfilled due to conflicting with other demands. Ultimately, it is found that geoengineering cannot be justified due to, amongst other reasons, risks.
