Discursive stability meets climate instability a critical exploration of the concept of climate stabilization in contemporary climate policy


Discursive stability meets climate instability a critical exploration of the concept of climate stabilization in contemporary climate policy



Global Environmental Change: 1, 53-64



ISSN/ISBN: 0959-3780

DOI: 10.1016/j.gloenvcha.2009.09.003

The goals and objectives of 'climate stabilization' feature heavily in contemporary environmental policy and in this paper we trace the factors that have contributed to the rise of this concept and the scientific ideas behind it. In particular, we explore how the stabilization-based discourse has become dominant through developments in climate science, environmental economics and policymaking.
