Climate Change and Ideology


Here is another example of how climate change becomes the narrative for other debates of our times. Roger Pielke Jr. recounts how his proposal for government action in energy issues ends up in a head on collision with a libertarian view of government and economics. Climate change doesn’t even seem like the issue at stake, but rather the underlying ideologies of how to go about it. Makes one think Mike Hulme was right about the role climate change plays as a narrative for our times.
