Abstract:

Global warming interacts in multiple ways with ecological and social systems in Northern America. While the US and Canada belong to the world’s largest per capita emitters of greenhouse gases, the Arctic north of the continent as well as the Deep South are already affected by a changing climate. American views on climate change and the environment are highly polarized. Despite the US’s and Canada’s rejection of international binding climate targets, some of the world’s most ambitious climate initiatives can be found on the local and regional level. In this book academics from various fields such as anthropology, art history, educational studies, cultural studies, environmental science, history, political science, and sociology explore society–nature interactions in – culturally as well as ecologically – one of the most diverse regions of the world.
