YouTube, Feb 2010 (www.theclimategroup.org): In The Politics of Climate Change, Lord Giddens argues that we do not have a systematic politics of climate change. Politics as usual won't allow us to deal with the climate change problems we face, while the recipes of the main challenger to orthodox politics, the green movement, are flawed at source. In this book, Lord Giddens introduces a range of new concepts and proposals to fill in the gap, and examines in depth the connections between climate change and energy security.
