Multiple jeopardies: emerging global rules for climate change adaptation

19 Jun 2006
Description

No other issue has the ability to bring together so many people and nations as does climate change. Peter Hayes suggests that although we are currently responding at the 1 percent level of what is needed to address the climate change threat, there is the possibility of a global coalition of interests that transcends national boundaries and historical antagonisms. It is perhaps the first time in history that the poor in the developing countries have a powerful ally among influential citizen groups and even some governments in the developed world. Trans-localism may be a key foundation stone of the new framework.
