Abstract: The papers presented here serve as examples of intellectual, political, and social responses to climate-related phenomena and their consequences. They grapple with several key issues including the agency of nonhuman nature and environmental determinism, environmental governance, climate as a cultural construction, the history of environmental ideas and discourse, environmental narratives, and the commodification of nature.
Keywords: History, geopolitics, Anthropocene, deep time, water, Gondwanaland, Cherokees, Antarctica.
