In pursuing international order, prosperity and democracy, politics and political decision-making have contributed to global climate change issues. Solutions need to be found that go beyond finding cleaner, newer technologies, revised policies and laws to curb pollution and carbon production, protecting species and habitats, or remembering to turn off the lights and put out the recycling. They need to re-imagine how our rich and complex ways of life are interconnected with the natural environment. Edmondson and Levy set out to increase understanding of why it takes so long for governments and others to agree on how to respond to the challenges of global climate change, and why it is important for them to continue to try to do so. They examine why it is so difficult for the international community to respond to global climate change. In doing so, they analyse and explain some of the strategies that might ultimately provide the foundations for appropriate responses.
