The editors wish to thank all of the authors of this Handbook not only for their efforts in producing their chapters, but also for their attempts to make their approaches and arguments accessible to those in other fields, and to a broader audience. More generally, we want to express our appreciation for all of those who have taken on the issue of climate change in their disciplines, and brought a full array of approaches, frames, discourses, and tools to bear in helping us understand—and begin to respond to—the many crucial relationships between climate change and society. We received helpful suggestions and comments from an audience at a symposium at the University of Copenhagen in December 2009, thanks to Kasper Møller Hansen for making that possible. Thanks also to Richard Howarth, Daniel Bromley, Hayley Stevenson, and several anonymous reviewers for advice; and to Jeff Joyce for help with the cover image.

Our editor at Oxford University Press, Dominic Byatt, supported the idea of this Handbook from the very beginning, and helped with every step of the way thereafter. Also at OUP, Lizzy Suffling and Sarah Parker were exemplary in their attention to detail.

Finally, we must acknowledge the recent loss of one of the best exemplars of interdisciplinary understanding, public communication, and broad passion on the issue of climate change, Professor Stephen Schneider. His wide array of talents are needed now more than ever, and while he is already sorely missed, the best tribute to his work will be the expanded efforts of others dedicated to seeing his mission through.
