Hi all, we've uploaded a preliminary schedule and the course information which you can find in the menus above. We would like you to read two short articles about climate change, politics and leadership for the course introduction. The first one is part of our course reader, published in 2012 Climate change going beyond dangerous – Brutal numbers and tenuous hope by Kevin Anderson, Professor of Energy and Climate Change and Director of the Tyndall Energy Programme in Manchester, UK. The second article is from the British political magazine Newstatesman, published in 2013, How science is telling us all to revolt Is our relentless quest for economic growth killing the planet? Climate scientists have seen the data – and they are coming to some incendiary conclusions, written by the author and journalist Naomi Klein. Both authors pose radical questions about our urgent needs and lacking efforts to tackle climate change and environmental degradation.
Looking forward to meet everybody in January.
Rickard and Sanna
