Why have many U.S. administrations focused so explicitly on technology in their climate policy approaches? What enabled the Bush administration to justify its vehement opposition to absolute emissions targets with a longer-term technological vision? This volume argues that the administration's strategy can only be understood by considering cultural conceptions of technology and the environment that have developed over centuries and are deeply embedded in American environmental thought. Author Peter Schniering has been working on international climate and energy policy since 2002, working as a consultant to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the International Energy Agency. This book is based on his dissertation.
