New publication: Feeling the Heat
Brazil, Russia, India and China, the so-called BRIC countries, are all rapidly industrialising, or in the case of Russia, re-industrialising, and at the same time facing major climate policy issues. Basically how can they have economic growth without compromising their own, and global, climate security?
A new book, ‘Feeling the Heat’, in the Palgrave Energy, Climate and Environment series, seeks to explore how they are trying to develop energy and climate policies, focusing on internal political processes and constraints.
A multi-authored text, edited by Ian Bailey and Hugh Compston from, respectively, Plymouth and Cardiff University, it’s something of a companion to their earlier ‘Turning Down the Heat’, which looked at the politics of climate change in the affluent democracies.
