The Many Uses of Climate Change
This afterword draws together insights from all of the chapters around themes of causation, representation, and instrumentalism. It explores the role of climate as an index, as embodied in the term climatic change, versus climate as an agent, as in the term climate change. In the former, climate is a descriptor of change; in the latter, it is a cause of change. This distinction signifies an underlying debate over the balance between human and natural agency.
