Special Issue on Perspectives on Climate Change

From European Journal of Social Theory

A broad consensus prevails today among science communities that we have entered an era known as ‘the Anthropocene’. Over the past two centuries in particular, humanity has dramatically altered the Earth’s atmosphere and natural landscape, becoming in the process a formidable geological force of change in its own right. We are now in the rather daunting position of determining how this tectonic shift will shape the future of this planet and its populations. This special issue considers perspectives on Climate Change and recognises that the challenge now is to push critical reflexive thinking towards creative new ways of imagining and realizing a more sustainable Anthropocene future for all.
