The Politics of Climate
It used to be that climate issues remained the domain of scientists, but such boundaries have been eliminated. Like other branches of science, climate science has turned political. Hard facts are ignored, and warnings from experts are shrugged off as opinion. Meanwhile, the planet suffers. Rising temperatures, low water supply, and extreme weather events threaten the lives of Earth's inhabitants. The viewpoints in this resource address many aspects of this topic, including how well our political systems are equipped to deal with climate change, other options for solving climate-related problems, and how climate relates to social justice.
