With Climate Change Criminology, green criminologist Rob White asks what can be learned by using the problem-solving focus of crime prevention to help face the challenges of climate change. He offers a close look at industries such as energy, food and tourism to detail their contribution to global warming. To help people rethink our approach to these questions, he introduces the concepts of “state-corporate crime” and “ecocide,” and he also presents commentary on topical issues such as the US withdrawal from the Paris Climate agreement. The book is part of the New Horizons in Criminology series, which draws on the interdisciplinary nature of criminology and incorporates emerging perspectives like social harm, gender and sexuality and green criminology.
