‘Climate change’ is a concept that moves between science, politics, media, and everyday life, and between different discursive practices. In doing so, it creates various kinds of meaning. This introduction presents the main approaches used in the book to explore how climate change is given meaning through discursive practices, and the temporalities implied in such sense-making. There are three main approaches: first, an emphasis on the chronotopes of different texts and genres; second, the examination of how concepts for describing a climate-changed future are plotted; and, finally, explorations of how tropes and tonality work intertextuality.
