Summary
In Ozone Discourses, Karen T. Litfin examines the Montreal Protocol, which constituted the first treaty on a global environmental problem and demonstrated the possibility of successful collaboration among scientists, policymakers, activists, and industry. "Knowledge brokers" employed their understanding of atmospheric science to supplant the short-term perspective of policymakers and industry representatives with a wider, intergenerational timeframe necessary for precautionary action
