Abstract or Summary
  • The issue of global climate change and possible remedies has been debated between national governments since the 1970s. While some countries have adopted aggressive measures to address the issue, others have lagged in their efforts. The United States, as a key player in global climate change conferences, has focused its efforts on defanging intergovernmental agreements and dragging its heels on federal climate change and energy policy. Sweden, on the other hand, has shown itself to be a global leader in climate change policy development and emission reduction practices, both nationally and globally. The purpose of this thesis is to examine possible causes behind the United States’ and Sweden’s disparate historical and current climate change policies and investigate whether successful measures in Sweden could be implemented in some way in the United States.
