Climate Change in a Myopic World

    Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


    As an academic whose employment and conscience are dominated by climate change it is easy to forget the UK is a peculiar little island. Within our shores not a day passes where the media isnt either bashing climate-science or predicting climate-induced apocalypse. Yet, across the North Sea, even our environmentally more progressive neighbours are not subject to this intensity of debate; perhaps our sea-faring nations obsession with weather explains the difference. Whatever the reasons, it is certainly rewarding to witness science so rapidly informing the climate debate. What is less welcome, however, is the subsequent economic capture of that debate and the almost sterile policy arising from it.
