Abstract


  • Early in 2011, the Journal of Australian Political Economy (JAPE)

    published a special issue titled, ‘Challenging Climate Change’. It brought

    together a number of papers by climate change researchers and activists

    who had been invited during 2009 to contribute their perspectives to a

    one-day forum covering four different aspects of the climate change

    debate: carbon markets and the regulation of renewable energy;

    technological pathways toward sustainability versus a low-tech, ecosufficiency

    future; climate justice; and the experiences of a variety of

    environmental NGOs in campaigning for policy reform (Goodman &

    Rosewarne, 2011: 7). The aim of the forum and those who organized it

    was to stimulate a more robust debate about climate change policy in

    Australia and the international negotiations focused on reducing

    atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions

    (Goodman & Rosewarne, 2011: 5).
