Col. J.D. Canty, USMC (Ret.) is a Research Fellow at the Potomac Institute for Policy Studies' Center for Emerging Threats and Opportunities (CETO). In the June issue of the Marine Corps Gazette, he tackles the hot-button issue of climate change. Canty writes, "As the challenge looms - and despite organizational misgivings - the Marine Corps will find itself as the Nation's torchbearer for rapid response to an ever-increasing litany of consequences - real or otherwise - arising from global warming and other climate change matters."

James Tate, Ph.D., Director of the Institute's Center for Environmental Economics and Ethics, is closely monitoring developments in the BP oil spill. In comments to The Boston Globe, Dr. Tate notes that we should have been better prepared for such a disaster. Dr. Tate is a former Science Advisor to the Secretary of the Interior and a noted naturalist who says all the ramifications of the spill are almost impossible to predict, even as the crisis is already wreaking serious environmental damage.

Potomac Institute for Policy Studies experts are warning that potential long-term health effects of the BP oil spill are both troubling and unclear. Cleanup workers and Gulf Coast residents are reporting symptoms that include headaches and respiratory problems. In a Los Angeles Times article, Center for Neurotechnology Studies Director Prof. James Giordano, PhD, says there is "overwhelming evidence" that compounds found in crude oil are dangerous, while Dr. Stephen Cunnion of the Institute's Center for Health Policy and Preparedness says more follow-up on individuals exposed to oil spills is needed.

On June 4, the Potomac Institute for Policy Studies presented a guest lecture by Lieutenant Colonel William Casebeer, USAF. Lt. Col. Casebeer is an intelligence analyst whose research covers neuroethics, the evolution of morality, and the intersections of cognitive science and national security policy. His talk was entitled "The Neurobiology of Free Will: How I Learned to Love Determinism and Still Respect Myself in the Morning." In his talk, Lt. Col. Casebeer examined how we can balance our belief in free will and moral choice against the seemingly contradictory notion that human psychology can be reduced to a simple matter of neurobiology.
