Too Hot to Handle? : The Democratic Challenge of Climate Change Paperback / softback



Scientists are clear that urgent action is needed on climate change, and world leaders agree.

Yet climate issues barely trouble domestic politics.

This book explores a central dilemma of the climate crisis: science demands urgency; politics turns the other cheek.

Is it possible to hope for a democratic solution to climate change?Based on interviews with leading politicians and activists, and the author's twenty years on the frontline of climate politics, this book explores why climate is such a challenge for political systems, even when policy solutions exist.

It argues that more democracy, not less, is needed to tackle the climate crisis, and suggests practical ways forward.
