Summary
  • To avoid uncontrolled climate change, greenhouse gas emissions will have to be brought under control by major emitters outside the affluent West. The authors investigate the political obstacles in BRIC countries and what their governments could do to strengthen climate policies without incurring serious political damage.
  • Hugely important, frequently insightful, wonderfully incisive -- this is a really valuable addition to the literature on climate change in general, and a ground breaking one when it comes to understanding the critically important role that the rapidly industrialising world must play if we are to stand a chance of avoiding dangerous climate change. Professor Andy Gouldson, Director, ESRC Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy, Swindon, UK As the largest of the industrializing states, Brazil, China, India and Russia will in many ways determine the future of the global environment. This book explores how these major economies understand and frame climate change and the actions they are prepared to take. Using a policy-network approach, it also proposes politically palatable strategies for action. Clearly, this is a must read for students, researchers, and policy practitioners. Miranda A. Schreurs, Director, Environmental Policy Research Centre, Freie Universitat Berlin, Germany With their massive and growing ecological footprints, China, India, Russia, and Brazil are crucial players in the politics of climate-change mitigation. This volume, with its extensive case studies and comparative analysis, will help scholars, students, journalists, and activists around the world to understand the political realities in these key countries.

Summary expansion
If dangerous climate change is to be avoided, greenhouse gas emissions will have to be brought under control in emerging major emitters such as China, India, Russia and Brazil. What are the political obstacles to climate policy in these countries? What political strategies can their governments use to strengthen climate policies without incurring serious political damage? Building on its predecessor volume, Turning Down the Heat: The Politics of Climate Policy in Affluent Democracies (Palgrave Macmillan 2008), this book includes contributions on the scientific, economic and international dimensions of climate change and climate policy. The authors describe the nature and sources of greenhouse gas emissions, the history of climate policies, and the political strategies employed by governments before conclusions are drawn about the main political obstacles facing industrializing countries on climate policy and how these might be overcome
