Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to analyze the dominating discourse of Swedish climate politics between the autumn of 2006 and the end of 2009, i.e. the tense period between the publication of the Stern-report and COP15. An analytical point of departure is the theory of reflexive modernity advocated by Ulrich Beck. His concept of industrial fatalism is used to explain the frames of climate politics that were constructed during these years of climate alarms. The empirical material that is investigated consists mainly of a large amount of debate articles on climate change and climate mitigation published in Swedish newspapers and journals during the period. Methodologically close reading of every single text is used in order to identify its central meanings and rhetorical figures. The coding process led to the identification of different patterns and meaning relations which together form different discourses. The most dominant of these discourses is called “the discourse of industrial fatalism”.
