"Takes the reader on an exciting and stimulating journey from understanding the science of climate change to discovering how it fits into the complex sustainability debate." --Chris Hope, University of Cambridge, UK
"Rather than just focussing on one aspect or the 'science part', the book argues that students need to be aware of the science, politics and governance of climate change... The book challenges students to 'weave together' these strands in their minds, which makes it quite a unique volume." --Dr Sarah Coulthard, Amsterdam Institute for Metropolitan and International Development Studies.
