Dead Heat: Global Justice and Global Warming (Seven Stories' Open Media Book) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Today's "extreme weather events" (record-breaking heat waves, droughts, and melting ice caps) foreshadow an increasingly unstable and dire future. Yet, despite all, the US government continues to reject the Kyoto Protocol, to deny the catastrophic consequences of oil dependency, and to define the politics of oil as the politics of U.S. unilateralism, domination, and war.

Dead Heat argues that justice—not rhetoric and "aid" but real developmental justice for the people of developing world—is going to be necessary, and surprisingly soon. It argues, more particularly, that such a justice must involve a phased transition from the Kyoto Protocol to a new climate treaty based on equal human rights to emit greenhouse pollutants. Dead Heat makes the case for climate justice, but insists that justice and equity, for all their manifold ethical and humanitarian attractions, must also be seen as the most "realistic" of virtues. It insists, in other words, that our limited environmental space will itself show that it is the dream of a "business as usual" future that is naïve and utopian.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 159-165) and index.

About the Author

TOM ATHANASIOU is a longtime green activist and technology critic, and the author of dozens of essays on environmental and techno-scientific politics. In 1996, his first book was published—in the United States as Divided Planet: The Ecology of Rich and Poor, and in England as Slow Reckoning: The Ecology of a Divided Planet. His interests focus on class division and distributive justice within finite environmental spaces.

PAUL BAER is a Ph.D. candidate in the Energy and Resources Group at the University of Calfornia, Berkeley. His research in the area of ecological economics focuses on both ecological and economic modeling and on the equity implications of various climate policy alternatives.
