Climate Change and Social Movements is a riveting and thorough exploration of three important campaigns to influence climate change policy in the United Kingdom. Social movement organizations and activists worked together to pass legislation on emissions targets, oppose the construction of carbon-intensive infrastructure and establish a public bank that would increase investment into renewable energy and energy efficient technology. What impact did the campaigns have on policy? When was the timing ripe for activists to win their demands? How were these social movement organizations and groups able to effect policy and what strategies were involved? The author answers all of these questions and more by delving deep into the campaigns and illuminating the way policymakers think about and respond to social movements.
