Global Warming and Sociology.
Lever-Tracy, C. (2008). Global Warming and Sociology. Current Sociology, 56(3), 445 466.
AbstractEscalating climate change, partly induced by human activity, has made
its way into public awareness, yet most sociologists, outside the specialism of
environmental sociology, have had surprisingly little to say about the possible
future social trajectories it may portend. Wary of accepting the truth claims of nat-
ural science, but aware of our own inability to judge the validity of their claims,
we have generally preferred to look the other way, although these developments
can affect the very core of our discipline’s concerns. We need a cooperative multi-
disciplinarity of social and natural scientists working together.
