I just came across this book review of a new edition of a collection called Green Planet Blues: Critical Perspectives on Global Environmental Politics. The review itself provides a quick introduction to a handful of important issues in global politics, and the news isn’t great.

Although many political leaders around the world express concern about global warming and environmental degradation, the political will to take effective action is lacking.
