Klimaets kommunale tilstand. Klimapolitik i danske kommuner

By Jens Hoff and Mikkel Giver Kjer

Klimaets kommunale tilstand undersøger, hvorfor landets kommuner tilsyneladende har kastet sig ud i en kommunal »klimarevolution«. På baggrund af to spørgeskemaundersøgelser gennemført i samtlige af landets kommuner i 2011 og 2014 samt 36 interviews med borgmestre, kommunalpolitikere og klimamedarbejdere svarer bogen på, hvad kommunerne foretager sig på klimaområdet, hvorfor de handler, hvordan de handler og med hvem, de udfører deres forskellige klimaaktiviteter.
