Why We Disagree about Climate Change

Understanding Controversy, Inaction and Opportunity
  • By Mike Hulme
$36.99
A unique insider's account of climate change and the diverse ways in which it is understood.

Climate change is not 'a problem' waiting for 'a solution'.  It is an environmental, cultural and political phenomenon which is re-shaping the way we think about ourselves, our societies and humanity's place on Earth.  Drawing upon twenty-five years of professional work as an international climate change scientist and public commentator, Mike Hulme provides a unique insider's account of the emergence of this phenomenon and the diverse ways in which it is understood.  He uses different standpoints from science, economics, faith, psychology, communication, sociology, politics and development to explain why we disagree about climate change.  In this way he shows that climate change, far from being simply an 'issue' or a 'threat', can act as a catalyst to revise our perception of our place in the world.  Why We Disagree About Climate Change is an important contribution to the ongoing debate over climate change and its likely impact on our lives.
