Reseachers Jessica Jansujwicz and Teresa Johnson from the Renewable Energy From The Tides project published an article, “The Maine Tidal Power Initiative: transdisciplinary sustainability science research for the responsible development of tidal power” in the August edition of “Sustainability Science”. The article discusses the formation of the Maine Tidal Power Initiative (MTPI), an interdisciplinary team of marine scientists, engineers, oceanographers and social scientists, working to understand the interactions between human and natural systems surrounding the development of tidal power in Maine.
A second article by Mark W. Anderson and the K-A Sustainability Behavior team of Mario Teisl, Caroline Noblet and Sharon Klein, has been accepted and will be published in an upcoming edition of “Sustainability Science”. The article, “The Incompatibility of Benefit-cost Analysis with Sustainability Science,” suggests that using traditional benefit-cost analysis as a methodology in sustainability science is unsuitable and that other approaches may be more appropriate.
