Description

Climate is an enduring idea of the human mind and also a powerful one. Today, the idea of climate is most commonly associated with the discourse of climate-change and its scientific, political, economic, social, religious and ethical dimensions. However, to understand adequately the cultural politics of climate-change it is important to establish the different origins of the idea of climate itself and the range of historical, political and cultural work that the idea of climate accomplishes. In Weathered: Cultures of Climate, distinguished professor Mike Hulme opens up the many ways in which the idea of climate is given shape and meaning in different human cultures - how climates are historicized, known, changed, lived with, blamed, feared, represented, predicted, governed and, at least putatively, re-designed.

Author Biography

Mike Hulme is professor of climate and culture in the Department of Geography at King's College London. His work sits at the intersection of climate, history and culture. He studies how knowledge about climate and its changes is made and represented and analyses the numerous ways in which the idea of climate-change is deployed in public discourse around the world. His previous books include Can Science Fix Climate Change? A Case Against Climate Engineering (Polity, 2014), Exploring Climate Change Through Science and In Society (Routledge, 2013) and Why We Disagree About Climate Change (Cambridge, 2009). This latter book was chosen by The Economist magazine as one of its science and technology books of the year. From 2000 to 2007 he was the Founding Director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, based at the University of East Anglia, and since 2007 has been the founding Editor-in-Chief of the review journal Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews (WIREs) Climate Change. He is currently Head of Department.
