Abstract

Global environmental problems pose entirely new challenges for science, technology, and policy making. Persistent scientific uncertainties, extremely long time horizons, the potential need for radical and systemic technological changes, and huge distances in both time and space between those that are supposed to act and those that will benefit, are in stark contrast to historical experiences of dealing with environmental issues.
