ACME: An International E-Journal for Critical Geographies has published a special issue, edited by Kelvin Mason, about the Politics of Climate Change. (volume 12, #1, 2013).
There are nine articles; one, by Vinthagen of Sweden, argues that the natural sciences alone are not sufficient to understand and deal with the dangers of climate change, but also require analysis of political power relations and the global political economy. He proposes a role for academics in his article, “Ten theses on why we need a ‘Social Science Panel on Climate Change’” at: http://www.acme-journal.org/vol12/Vinthagen2013.pdf. The journal ACME is online at: http://www.acme-journal.org/Home.html; this latest issue will be posted shortly.
