A journalist and academic specializing in the social impact of science, Shearer examines the law suit filed by the tiny Alaska Native village of Kivalina against 24 fossil fuel companies in February 2008 for contributing to the village's erosion through large greenhouse gas emissions, and for creating a false debate around climate change. She discusses blueprint for denial, shaping legality, fossil fuels and US power, global what?, the human face of global warming, and relocation in a neoliberal state. She has not indexed her work.
