Tsosie is pictured on the publication's cover, and is featured in the main piece, "Sustaining Change: ASU researchers discover keys to promoting habits for a healthier planet" by Lee Gimpel. In a sidebar, "Framing Change," Tsosie points out that many of the world's surviving indigenous cultures are the most susceptible to climate change because their lands often are likely to experience drought or flooding. This puts them at risk for extinction, she explains, and therefore, they have, or should have, a disproportionate interest in sustainability.
In the same sidebar, Askland talks about his research into the legal framework around sustainability, and for example, how the preferential treatment that certain power sources have enjoyed might change with regulation that tilts the balance toward wind and solar sources.
Askland teaches courses at the College of Law in Privacy and Economics and the Law. He also has research interests in Environmental Ethics and Bioethics and in Moral and Political Theory. Askland is a member of the American Philosophical Association and served on the program committee of its Pacific Division.
