Scientifically, climate is mostly understood. Today, it is the socio-political issue "climate" which public interest is focused on. The medium through which the issue is activated in public discourse and policymaking is language, laden with cultural constructions and beliefs. That is what this much needed book is about: the metamorphoses of climate when entering different public arenas. * Hans von Storch, Climate scientist and Professor at the Meteorological Institute of the University of Hamburg, Germany *
