Summary
  • "International responses to the crisis of climate change have been controversial, contentious, and, to date, largely unsuccessful. Despite concern and action for over two decades, the global rise in greenhouse gas emissions has yet to be arrested."
  • "Leigh Glover argues that efforts by the international community to control climate change using modernity's usual scientific, economic, and governmental tools are inherently flawed, so that the problem of climate change defines modernity's end in ecological terms. This book offers a new way to understand the climate change problem and is concerned with problems of modernity and postmodernity in the context of contemporary environmental thought. Focussing on the international politics surrounding the UN agreement on climate change, the Framework Convention on Climate Change and its Kyoto Protocol, the author examines this important issue using the key aspect of climate change science, global environmental politics, and global environmental management."--BOOK JACKET
