Psychology and global climate change

In line with DCDC's Water/Climate Briefing theme for 2011-2012, "The Psychology of Environmental Decision-Making," American Psychologist, the flagship journal of the American Psychological Association (APA), published a special issue on Psychology and Global Climate Change. The May-June 2011 issue contains seven peer-reviewed articles that are based upon and update the contents of a 2009 APA task force report. All eight of the task force members, who work in a variety of areas across psychology, contributed to the writing of the articles in the special issue.
