Climate Politics: IR and the Environment

August 12, 2009

Starting this week, I’ll be blogging until at least the end of the year on the e-IR website. The blog is narrowly focused on Climate Politics: IR and the Environment, so I’ll still be blogging about other international relations topics here at the Duck. The idea is to focus on the run up to the UN Climate Change Conference at Copenhagen this December.

Hopefully, I’ll have something to say as I’m currently writing a chapter on the politics of climate change for a new edition of Ralph Carter’s USFP textbook. Also, I’m teaching “Global Ecopolitics” this fall, with a focus on climate change.

If you are interested, drop by the new blog.

Update: The first two posts are on-line now:

August 12, I posted “Climate change and security politics.”

And today, August 14, I posted “Investment bubbles and climate politics.”
