Climate change: Science, international cooperation and global environmental politics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapters

Abstract

Among all of the myriad global environmental issues, climate is by far the most complex – scientifically and politically. It presents profound dangers to people, other species and the biosphere in the long term. The politics of climate change have been tortuous and slow, particularly at the international level. Over several decades, climate change has moved from being a minor issue in international relations to being one of the most high-profile global issues. It is by far the most prominent challenge in both the practice and study of global environmental politics.
