Abstract:

"Although climate change has become the dominant concern of the twenty-first century, global powers refuse to implement the changes necessary to reverse these trends. Instead, they have neoliberalized nature and climate change politics and discourse, and there are indications of a virulent strain of capital accumulation on the horizon. Adiran Parr calls attention to the problematic socioeconomic conditions of neoliberalism capitalism underpinning the world's environmental challenges, and she argues that, until we grasp the implications of neoliberalism's interference in climate change talks and policy, humanity is on track to an irreversible crisis."--Jacket.
