Are climate policy-makers to blame for lack of public support?

FDSD and Chatham House held a half-day seminar at Chatham House to consider how various climate change scenarios could affect democracy in the UK and US, and to ask whether international policy-makers should share some of the blame for why liberal democracies are finding it hard to secure broad public support for action.

The meeting was chaired by FDSD Director Halina Ward and included presentations from Michael Jacobs, a former Special Advisor to Gordon Brown, and political scientist Professor Ed Weber of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
