EARLY ACCESS: Climate change isn't everything

I spoke with Mike Hulme about 'climatism' and why climate change has become an ideology

Mike Hulme is a Professor of Human Geography and head of the Department of Geography at the University of Cambridge. His research focuses on representations of climate change in history, culture, and media, and the ways in which climate change is deployed in public and political discourse. Mike's 2009 book, Why We Disagree About Climate Change, was chosen as one of The Economist's books of the year, and looks at how the idea of climate change has taken such a dominant position in modern politics. His most-recent book, Climate Change Isn’t Everything: Liberating Climate Politics from Alarmism, addresses what he calls "climatism" — climate reductionism as ideology.

I spoke with Mike about wildfires, "global warming," climate change activism, policy, hysteria, and more.
