Power in a Warming World : The New Global Politics of Climate Change and the Remaking of Environmental Inequality
MIT Press
344 p.
Islands and coastlines face inundation, and widespread drought, flooding, and famine are expected to worsen in the poorest and most vulnerable countries ; combining rich empirical description with a political economic view of power relations, the authors document the struggles of states and social groups most vulnerable to a changing climate and describe the emergence of new political coalitions that take climate politics beyond a simple North-South divide ; they offer six future scenarios in which power relations continue to shift as the world warms.
