Ik gaf tien jaar geleden regelmatig een college Techniek in Duurzame Ontwikkeling aan studenten die bijna aan hun afstudeerop-dracht begonnen. Singly and together, these analyses reveal a more detailed, nuanced view of the political options open to activist governments. This is the first book-length study of political strategy and climate change and will be of interest not only to policymakers but also to experts and activists looking to formulate politically realistic policy proposals, and scholars and students of politics and environmental studies. This volume, available for the first time in paperback, presents a detailed study of the climate strategies of ExxonMobil, Shell and Statoil. The Stern Review, while contested in some quarters, provided strong indications that the economic costs of inaction or pure adaptation are likely greatly to outweigh those incurred by prompt and decisive action to cut and capture greenhouse gas emissions Stern 2007. The authors show how practical measures to limit carbon impact can be achieved even in the face of public indifference. Addressing both mitigation measures for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adaptation to the effects of climate change, the book provides an overview of emerging practice, with analysis of the drivers of policy change and practical implementation of measures.
The book describes the way private common-law strategies and public-law legislative strategies have approached the task of protecting the environment, and explore the greatest environmental challenge to have so far confronted environmental law and politics; the threat of global climate change. Finally, digitally enhanced global activism can have a powerful impact on the climate change debate and the pressure for change. A sound understanding of the economics of climate change is needed in order to underpin an effective global response to this challenge. The article concludes by sketching some of the challenges lying ahead of discourse analysis. The speech is available online at www. Risk Analysis and Climate Change Nick Pidgeon and Catherine Butler 3. Agenda-Setting and Climate Change Sarah B.
Controversieel Dat is geen gemakkelijke boodschap: niet alleen de wereld moet veranderen, de ingenieur moet ook breder leren denken. The article concludes with a shortlist of especially promising strategies. It shows how European states and the Small Island States have been key actors to present climate migration as a matter of security, while the emerging developing countries have actively opposed such a framing. The rationale is that climate change will cause mass movements of climate refugees, causing tensions and even violent conflict. He has published widely on aspects of environmental policy, including a special issue of Area on climate policy implementation 2007 , and Turning down the heat: The politics of climate policy in affluent democracies with Hugh Compston, Palgrave Macmillan, 2008. In contrast, public opinion seems to regard with scepticism the pronouncements on climate change that emanate from the scientific community. Original theoretical, empirical, and policy-related insights will provide students, scholars, and policy makers with the necessary tools to review the effectiveness of these framing strategies for the purpose of climate change diplomacy and delve into the wider implications of these framing strategies for the governance of climate change.
Do these strategies and requirements meet each other or fail? Four key propositions are presented. . First, that climate change needs to be seen as an immediate issue requiring urgent attention, not as a remote problem down the line. A Strategy for Better Climate Change Regulation: Towards a Public Interest Orientated Regulatory Regime Ian Bartle 4. Describing the politics of climate policy in this way will result in different conceptual, logical views of this phenomenon.
The city needs to reflect critically on its economics-first strategy and undertake more refined vulnerability studies and risk assessments to identify spatially and sectorally-specific adaptation measures. As a result, reasonable degrees of confidence now exist on a number of key issues. The analyses demonstrate that direct democracy makes it difficult to implement far-reaching, but probably most effective climate change policies, while its direct and indirect impact on the policy-making process rather produces politics of small steps that are supported by a broad political elite. Most of the vast swathes of books, articles, or blogs, written on climate change policy proceed on the basis as if politics is irrelevant. The book further explores the growing role of civic society in climate action plans, analyzing public opinion, the U. Ian Bailey is an Associate Professor at the University of Plymouth, specialising in European climate policy.
The oil industry and climate change provide the clearest example of how the two are linked; what is less well-known is how the industry is responding to these concerns. Introduction: Political Strategies for Climate Policy Hugh Compston Technique 2. This site is like a library, you could find million book here by using search box in the widget. It drew in some part upon the successive editions of his book, The politics of climate change 2009; 2011. It is now generally agreed that climate change is occurring and that greenhouse gas emissions need to be cut very significantly if it is to be brought under control, yet governments in affluent democracies are not implementing policies that have the capacity to do this.
This is the first book-length study of political strategy and climate change and will be of interest not only to policymakers but also to experts and activists looking to formulate politically realistic policy proposals, and scholars and students of politics and environmental studies. We first outline the way that fossil fuel companies have been able to secure their interests in state policies on global warming. The analysis generates policy-relevant knowledge about whether and how corporate resistance to a viable climate policy can be overcome. As scientists are denied the possibility of conducting experiments with the real climate, only climate models can give insights into man-induced climate change, by experimenting with digital climates under varying conditions and by extrapolating past and future states into the future. Underpinning the anticipatory governance approach to decision-making is a three-step process which includes future analysis, flexibility of strategies and monitoring and action.
These are set within the context of recent research and scholarly works on the role of spatial planning in combating climate change. Climate change was not on the policy agenda in Hong Kong before 2007. It is politics that is the problem. However, a model and its results, in particular in the case of climate models which interconnect countless hypotheses, is only to some extent testable, although an advanced infrastructure of evaluation strategies has been developed involving strategies of model intercomparison, ensemble prognoses, uncertainty metrics on the system and component levels. Singly and together, these analyses reveal a more detailed, nuanced view of the political options open to activist governments. And to some extent the inferences drawn from such differing views about the nature of political obstacles to more vigorous action on climate change - and the best ways of overcoming them - will also be different.
The book argues that much of the division between these states alliances can be traced back to climate change politics. The complexity of climate models goes hand in hand with uncertainties, but uncertainty is in conflict with socio-political expectations. Agenda-Setting and Climate Change Sarah B. Addressing Climate Change: A Media Perspective Neil T. And various branches of the technical sciences and economics have developed innovative technologies and policy instruments to curb emissions. It discusses the challenges local governments face in taking the lead through anticipatory governance to address climate change adaptation in their planning efforts.
