Global warming and the environmental stratagies of the United States

1) Considering each of the four dimensions of environmental politics is your topic/case going about the same, worse, or better than you would expect based on the course themes/cases that we have looked throughout the semester? How are our social systems impacting natural systems? In looking at the stages of the policy process, institutions and players has there been an effective response? Where is citizen behavior related to your topic? How could people be motivated to change? What is the impact of individual psychology? Cultural values? Are there new frames that could work with or change current values and the political attitudes around your topic?
2) How could the cutting edge approaches to sustainability that we have looked at throughout the course including Bill Wallace s  Becoming Part of the Solution, Integral Ecology and Sustainability, and  The Death of Environmentalism article be applied to your case?
