Sammanfattning

International agreements such as the Kyoto Protocol, EU regulatory and country-specific national climate policies offer some hope of addressing climate change. But all too often implementation of these high level objectives is derailed at the sub-national, local and, perhaps most important, individual level, by a variety of structural, policy and perceived barriers that result in a failure of effective action. Drawing on original research from Sweden, this volume examines the difficulties of aligning climate policy from international to national and sub-national levels. The authors address the full range of barriers and complexities, including governance structures, the relationships between ‘experts’ and the public, political feasibility, tax measures, perceptions of fairness and self-interest, and the importance of environmental values. Also covered are the roles and perceptions of organizations and professions, the place of carbon-free technologies, the relationship between national and EU regulations, and the monumental challenge of governing the climate in a broader and divided world.
