COP15 Copenhagen Blogs

Two of 'em, from folks participating and observing the talks. Here and here. I had meant to post these a while ago, but life happens and I was distracted. Anyway, both are authored by academics researching social and economic dimensions of climate change. It is interesting to compare the discourse from the right on climate change - combusting large amounts of discursive methane chasing phantom bits of contrived Achillean controversy over minute bits of science they don't quite grasp - compared with where the actual conversation is now. Which, it occurs to me, is also funny, because the right is arguing about scientific controversy which might have been in vogue twenty or thirty years ago much like they argue endlessly about past wars and advocate other fictions. Talk about being behind the curve...
