Climate Change Scepticism: A Transnational Ecocritical Analysis


Add your own review!

Overview

Climate Change Scepticism is the first ecocritical study to examine the cultures and rhetoric of climate scepticism in the UK, Germany, the USA and France. Collaboratively written by leading scholars from Europe and North America, the book considers climate skeptical-texts as literature, teasing out differences and challenging stereotypes as a way of overcoming partisan political paralysis on the most important cultural debate of our time.

Reviews

Scientifically, climate is mostly understood. Today, it is the socio-political issue climate which public interest is focused on. The medium through which the issue is activated in public discourse and policymaking is language, laden with cultural constructions and beliefs. That is what this much needed book is about: the metamorphoses of climate when entering different public arenas. * Hans von Storch, Climate scientist and Professor at the Meteorological Institute of the University of Hamburg, Germany *
