Social Science Perspectives on Carbon
Process for Developing Chapter
This chapter was developed as part of the overall process for initiating the Second State of the Carbon Cycle Report (SOCCR2). Although “societal drivers” were specified as a section in all chapters, the Federal Liaisons and Science Leads agreed that a separate chapter on relevant social science research was needed to strengthen the report and respond to the recommendations of the First State of the Carbon Cycle Report (SOCCR1). The chapter contents were developed through conference calls and discussions with comments from scientists, U.S. federal agency personnel, and the public.
