Editorial: A sociological reflection on the complexities of climate change research
by Ariel Salleh
International Journal of Water (IJW), Vol. 5, No. 4, 2010

Abstract: This International Journal of Water presents European and Australian research into the New Water Paradigm as an ecologically integrative approach to climate change. The editorial outlines the political economic context of the climate crisis and the discourses that shape public responses. It suggests that the current international framing of climate policy by business and governments acts as a 'methodological forcing' on the science. It registers the call of some members of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) for more holistic environmental assessments. And it notes the inverse relation between global 'analytical scale' and personal responsibility for enacting climate solutions.
