Abstract:

Today's record-breaking heat waves, droughts, and floods foreshadow an increasingly unstable future. The Bush Administration, meanwhile, has chosen to reject the Kyoto Protocol, deny the consequences of oil dependency, and define the politics of oil as the politics of military domination and war. Still, the science is clear: if we don't drastically reduce our greenhouse pollution, we'll soon suffer catastrophic climatic change, and the poor among us will suffer the most. The authors of this book argue that only a social justice approach can shape the necessary compromise between the North and the South, and cut a path to sustainability on a planet riven with explosive national, ideological, and class divides. Dead Heat isn't simply about understanding the political and social arguments about global warming, it's about winning them.--Back cover.
