Special Issue "Anthropogenic Climate Change: Social Science Perspectives"
A special issue of Climate (ISSN 2225-1154).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2022.
Interests: environmental social science; specifically climate adaptation; connectedness to nature; environmental education; landscape science
Ongoing social science understanding of climate change is critical for addressing the complexity and seriousness of the climate crisis. While the study of climate change is inherently interdisciplinary, we wish to acknowledge that the drivers of greenhouse gas emissions are rooted in human behavior. Further, we can also acknowledge that the solutions to this enormous problem are primarily social, requiring political, economic, and educational foci. This Special Issue will provide a forum for social science research to demonstrate how the social sciences can contribute useful methods and data, critical perspectives, and creative insight into climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts.
