Climate Change, Science, and The Politics of Shared Sacrifice

Todd Eisenstadt and Stephen MacAvoy

  • The text is supplemented by over a dozen "hands on" activities, presented at the end of each chapter, present basic scientific exercises to allow students to solve problems and draw conclusions, and to provoke group discussion playing roles in case studies ranging from UN negotiators to citizen groups seeking to rebuild New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
  • Having taught the course several times, the instructors sought to balance the need to convey the dire circumstances we face but also to empower them by conveying specific courses of action, particularly at the policy level.
  • By offering basic quantitative evidence and exercises, as well as qualitative case studies, the authors foster multiple approaches and perspectives for understanding climate change, making the text interdisciplinary in its approach as well as in its content.
