Climate Change -- Who's Carrying the Burden: The Chilly Climates of the Global Environmental Dilemma. A Co-Edited Collection by Anders Sandberg and Tor Sandberg.

The IRIS is pleased to announce the campus book launch which will draw on comments from the book’s contributors and provide an opportunity for the York public to speak directly with this insightful group of thinkers.

The book highlights how climate change can hide historical contexts in terms of how the carbon economy can lead to exploitation of natural resources, colonialism and capitalism. This book reveals some of the complexities behind carbon trading systems and urges us to imagine new ways of living. his is a space
