CLIMATE CHANGE and its IMPACT

The relaxed attitude with which this problem is being treated in many quarters within the UK is wholly unwarranted. The crisis is cosmic in scale and immediate.

Northcott covers similar ground but adds a devastating critique of the political stonewalling which has surrounded climate negotiations in the past twenty years.

THE DEVELOPING WORLD

The developing world is stereotypically seen as a collection of countries incapable of bettering themselves either economically or politically.  Certainly, they are victims of what was once described as the ‘discontents of globalization’, but they are not passive victims. The following papers provide accounts of the determined efforts, both political and economic, made by various countries in sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America  to pull themselves out of morass of internal misgovernance and external economic exploitation.
