Abstract

There seems today a strong sense of malaise surrounding climate politics, created by the gap between the scale of required action identified by climate science and the adequacy of societal and political commitments. It is important to consider anew how rights, risks and responsibilities are framed in climate change debates because of the ways in which they are exacerbating a situation of stalemate.
