 About the Book 

Fair Weathers a unique, cross-disciplinary assessment of fairness and equity issues in the context of global climate change--a crucial dimension in current international negotiations--written by a collection of leading scientists in economics, sociology and social psychology, ethics, international law and political science.How should responsibility for adapting to climate change be distributed? Who should bear the costs of mitigating its impacts and how should these costs be measured? Answers to these questions differ, often according to the vulnerability, wealth and level of industrial development of the country.Finding a fair solution is controversial, but crucial to the complex and vital negotiations over global warming. This illuminating and accessible volume explores the policy dimensions and analytical needs of the negotiation process. It is essential reading for policy makers and students and teachers of economics, sociology and social psychology, ethics, international relations, law and political science.CONTRIBUTORSH Asbjorn AaheimFrank BiermannSamuel FankhauserCarsten HelmJuliane KokottJoanne Linnerooth-BayerVolker LinneweberElizabeth L MaloneShuzo NishiokaDavid W PearceSteve RaynerP R ShuklaDominik ThiemeMichael ThompsonRichard S J Tol David G Victor
