Bringing it Home: Connecting Climate Science and Sociopolitical Vulnerability
Public policy implementation often reflects the notion that all politics is local. The seemingly remote, non-local nature of global climate change has hindered political progress to reduce carbon emissions. But worsening droughts, flooding and sea-level rise, always local in impact, have now been linked to human-driven changes in atmospheric composition. This class reviews the linked climate processes and discusses mitigation and adaption policies that have been adopted as a result of local vulnerabilities.
