This chapter considers the future of climate politics, drawing on trends from recent decades that look likely to continue. Alas, it is unlikely that climate politics will be up to the task of significantly mitigating, least of all preventing, very painful impacts of climate change, or indeed enabling adequate adaptation to them. Greenhouse pollution will continue to grow for some decades and there will be enormous human suffering, including many deaths, as a consequence. But such a future is not absolutely certain. The chapter proposes a cosmopolitan alternative that centers climate politics on persons. Such an alternative reveals a potential pathway through which the world may be able to break through the multiple roadblocks that have so far prevented effective responses to climate change.
