Climate and Society: Transforming the Future

In this book Robin Leichenko and Karen O’Brien present current and emerging thinking on the social dimensions of climate change. 

Book cover

The authors frame climate change as a social issue that calls for integrative approaches to research, policy, and action. They explore dominant and relevant discourses on the social drivers and impacts of climate change, highlighting the important roles that worldviews and beliefs play in shaping responses to climate challenges. Situating climate change within  the context of a rapidly changing world, the book demonstrates how dynamic political, economic, and environmental contexts amplify risks yet also present opportunities for transformative responses.
