Why are climate change policies more contested even when we have more scientific knowledge and more public awareness about negative impacts?
VanDeveer focuses on “politicization” in our emergent climate politics of everyday life, and draws lessons from domestic and international politics associated with “win-win” initiatives for biodiversity and climate governance, mining and minerals governance, coal phase-out politics and conflicts associated with renewable energy projects.
