I have been asked to speak on the relevance of an interdisciplinary approach to the question of climate change. The way I would like to approach this issue is to first discuss two topics extensively. The first is the role of China in global climate politics. The second is the implication of the current global economic downturn for climate policy. I will then draw out some of the implications of these two related topics for an interdisciplinary approach.
