Low, Sean; Boettcher, Miranda (2020): Delaying decarbonization: Climate governmentalities and sociotechnical strategies from Copenhagen to Paris

Low, Sean; Boettcher, Miranda (2020): Delaying decarbonization: Climate governmentalities and sociotechnical strategies from Copenhagen to Paris. In Earth System Governance 5, p. 100073. DOI: 10.1016/j.esg.2020.100073.

"An era (2005–2015) centered around the Copenhagen Accord saw the rise of several immature sociotechnical strategies currently at play: carbon capture and storage, REDD+, next-generation biofuels, shale gas, short-lived climate pollutants, carbon dioxide removal, and solar radiation management. Through a framework grounded in governmentality studies, we point out common trends in how this seemingly disparate range of strategies is emerging, evolving, and taking effect."
