Climate for Change: Non-State Actors and the Global Politics of the Greenhouse provides a challenging explanation of the forces that have shaped the international global warming debate. Unlike other books on the politics of climate change, this book concentrates on how non-state actors, such as scientific, environmental and industry groups, as opposed to governmental organisations, affect political outcomes in global fora on climate change. It also provides insights into the role of the media in influencing the agenda. The book draws on a range of analytical approaches to assess and explain the influence of these non-governmental organisations on the course of global climate politics. The book will be of interest to all researchers and policy-makers associated with climate change, and will be used on university courses in international relations, politics and environmental studies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Its reports are the most authoritative available on the subject.' Climate Policy
"...each chapter does an admirable job of highlighting the multiple and complex ways in which each set of nongovernmental actors exercises influence in global climate politics...Newell deserves much credit for directly addressing the methodological challenges associated with detecting and analyzing such phenomena as 'reputational' power and the 'mobilization of bias...' This timely and probing critique of the progressive international temper of our times should be read and pondered by anyone who takes an interest in the ethics of contemporary world politics." Canadian Journal of Political Science
"...Newell makes many excellent points about the political scene surrounding global change..." Geoscience Canada
