    Two Degrees: A Global Climate Accord and its Disparities2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the discourse of global climate change the figure two (2) plays a prominent role. When the Copenhagen Accord anchored the two-degree-goal in 2009 the figure became a powerful target guiding international climate politics and a publicly comprehensible symbol of urgency. Based on scientific conjectures of planetary boundaries the figure quantifies the objective to limit the average global temperature increase to two degrees Celsius compared to the pre-Industrial Era. Although the figure continues to be contested it continues to mark the space for humanity that is safe to operate in, maintaining present ecological and social conditions on Earth.

     

    The two-degree-goal’s most attractive aspect is also its most problematic: a single numeral gathers ecological thresholds and political ambitions. This paper explores the promises and shortcomings of consigning an aggregated number to describe a temporally and spatially complex condition. It will do so by focusing on two paradoxes in the construction of the global target. First, the global average does not disperse into the diversity of local specificities. The figure two quantifies climate change on the global scale; by definition it cannot be experienced locally. The paper will discuss how the focus on temperature increase in aggregate diverts from the inequalities of causes and effects of climate change. The figure may be global in its scientific and political reach but is by no means universal in its impact. Secondly, the political guide value and the scientific threshold value do not necessarily correspond. While the guide value marks a political turning point the threshold value marks an ecological tipping point at which climate change may become uncontrollable. Two points, two futures: one relying on nature’s ‘elasticity’, the other experimenting with ‘overshooting’ the limits, suggesting a set of options among which stability is only one, and possibly not the most desirable route. The paper will discuss the two-degree-goal as putting the readiness for uncertainty and flexibility to the test on the scale of global humanity by counting on the adaptive abilities of a global system that lacks local correspondence.

    Abstract [de]

    „Die Arktis ist heiß“, bemerkte Schwedens Arktis-Botschafter Gustaf Lind im März 2012, und er meinte damit nicht nur die globale Erwärmung (The Economist 2012). Von einem Dasein als globales Randgebiet ist die Arktis ins Zentrum internationaler Politik und Forschung gerückt. Das sich zurückziehende Polareis hat ungeheure kommerzielle und politische Aktivitäten im Zugang zu bislang unerschlossenen Erz- und Öllagerstätten, Fischgründen sowie Wald- und Wildbeständen freigesetzt. Hoffnungen auf Ressourcen, neue Transport- und Handelswege und nicht zuletzt der wachsende Tourismus haben die Arktis zu einem geopolitisch umkämpften Terrain werden lassen. Neben den arktischen Bewohner_innen und den selbst ernannten Arktisstaaten (darunter auch Schweden) umfasst die zunehmende Zahl sogenannter ‚Stakeholder‘ auch geographisch ferne Staaten wie China, Indien und Japan, supranationale Zusammenschlüsse wie die Europäische Union, eine Vielzahl von Nichtregierungsorganisationen (NGOs), wissenschaftlicher Institutionen sowie lokaler und multinationaler Unternehmen, die ihre Ansprüche mit Blick auf globale Sicherheitsfragen zu legitimieren suchen: militärische Sicherheit, Energiesicherheit und Umweltsicherheit.

    Stress!2014Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [de]

    Seit den 1970er-Jahren ist Stress eine zentrale Lebenserfahrung und ein privilegiertes Deutungskonzept westlicher Gesellschaften. Die Medien widmen sich dem Thema in immer neuen Varianten: Stress und Ernährung, Stress durch beleuchtete Städte, Stress im Urlaub, Banken unter Stress, gestresste Schulkinder, Stress am Steuer, digitaler Stress. Die Geschichtswissenschaft befasst sich mit diesem Komplex allerdings erst seit kurzem. Mit dem Stressbegriff ließ und lässt sich eine Gesellschaft denken, die durch Elastizität ausgezeichnet ist. Der Stress erlaubt Anpassungsleistungen als Bewältigungsstrategien. Die übergreifende, zeithistorisch zu prüfende These des Heftes lautet, dass der Stress nicht nur Syndrom und Krisenphänomen einer Gesellschaft im Umbruch ist, sondern konstitutiv für eine Gesellschaft, die sich per se als instabil, wandelbar, innovativ und dynamisch begreift.
