It took organizing: Corporate political struggles over the natural environment

Abstract [en]

The political debates that have ensured the destruction of the Holocene will stay with us in the Anthropocene. Corporations have been identified as central actors in climate change politics through the deliberate use of misinformation strategies. These strategies undermine the political response by challenging the common assumptions necessary for rational debate and further fuel political polarization. By identifying a debate over carbon regulation as the unit of analysis rather than the strategies employed by specific actors, this paper makes two important contributions. First, the analysis shows that opposition to the policy was concentrated in a small but powerful segment of corporate Australia which masked a broader ambivalence about the policy across the corporate sector. Second, the analysis shows how both supporters and opponents employ complementary arguments about carbon regulation which ground the natural environment within economic discourses, and so reinforce the idea that financial markets offer the means for salvation from environmental destruction.
