Reading/Literature for Spring 2013

Dear future students,

We are now well through the planning phase for the coming Climate Change Leadership course, and we can tell it is going to be an interesting semester. To give you some advance notice, here is some info on the required reading for the course. Some of the books you are required to get hold of yourselves - others will be sold at cost by us at the start of the semester. Read on!

There are four books that will be read during the semester. These first three books will be read by everybody (in order, corresponding to Sections 1, 2 and 4)

  • James Hansen's Storms of my Grandchildren
  • Mike Hulme's Why we Disagree about Climate Change
  • Sara Parkin's The Positive Deviant

For the fourth book, there is a choice, where half the class will read one, and the other half the other (during Section 3 of the course). You will read ONE of the following books:

  • Anthony Giddens' The Politics of Climate Change
  • Patrick Bond's The Politics of Climate Justice

When you arrive for registration, there will be two further sources of reading. They will act as Course Readers, with individually selected articles relating to each lecture. The exact price will be known once printed, but likely to be around 200kr in total - for which you should bring cash with you to registration.

Any questions, feel free to email us at

Looking forward to meeting you!
