Climate and Society finds the world at a crossroads. It explains the profound implications of the roads ahead. It documents the benefits of transformative action, the individual and the political reasons for inaction, and the consequences for society and the wider environment.

These powerful ideas come from two of the most influential scholars of the social dilemmas of climate change and illuminate the necessary choices in a rigorous and methodical manner.

This book takes a deeply human view on the challenge of global warming, highlighting critical issues of values, discourses, equity, political economy, vulnerability, and justice, while also providing a comprehensive overview of the human dimensions of climate change. It engages with the emotional, cultural, and embodied experiences of a changing climate and asks readers to consider their own feelings and views. 

The authors’ call for individual and collective transformation offers information, action, hope, and opportunities to students who may feel despairing about our future.
