With dispatches from the front lines of diverse fields and geographies, the authors provide some of the first maps of this fast evolving landscape underlying some of the most important decisions humanity will make in the 21st century. This volume examines the reasons for inaction, by considering different cultural and ethical perspectives and how the media plays a role in translating and presenting scientific information. It provides the most comprehensive assessment available, by leading experts in the field. Here are some great people trying to sort out the complex terrain of media and culture that lies between our everyday lives and the "grand stage" of climate change politics and policy-making.
It is not all pretty, but it is helpful, and therefore hopeful. The varied perspectives gathered in this important book go a long way toward unsnarling the cultural politics of climate change-the first step in weaving the stories and policies we'll need to move forward. Summing Up: Recommended.
