2nd Annual CSSN Conference: Global Climate Governance In The Face Of Obstruction

May 31, 2023 - June 2, 2023

The effort to address climate change has been inadequate, in spite of decades of work and growing certainty on the science, technology, and policy solutions. A key reason for the lack of progress in developing local, national and global governance adequate to the problem is the obstruction of climate action by a sophisticated and well-funded network of organizations, connected to but going far beyond the fossil fuel industry and other “vested” interests. The strategies of those obstructing climate action have evolved significantly, recently including far less denial of the scientific reality of human-caused climate change, and far more delay tactics and discourses. The nature, role and strategy of these organizations is our focus of research in the Climate Social Science Network.

This second conference will combine public seminars on climate obstruction with closed working meetings for the working groups of CSSN, and the full network.
