The primary question motivating this work is the question of why public and political debates about climate change, particularly in the United States, are so intransigent and vitriolic. Eubanks takes the position that the intransigence and vitriol are not simply explained in moralistic terms; rather, he argues, “the argumentative situation is affected by numerous factors that are both less noticeable and more damaging than its all-too-evident hostility suggests” (3).
