بررسی روند و انگیزه های پشت برنامه ریزی تغییر آب و هوا
Abstract: Sub-surface motivations of individuals to engage in planning for climate change adaptation and response are influenced by a combination of orthodox factors such as their community\'s physical and social demographics, and an array of supplementary factors such their community\'s epistemology, direct experiences, hyperbolic discounting, media, and outreach initiatives. In turn, public demand for initiatives and a community\'s ability to facilitate an institutional supply of initiatives shapes the surface motivations of decision-makers that direct the development, implementation, and diffusion of initiatives. This paper investigates the relationship between influential factors and motivations for climate change planning by examining the climate change planning process of Aspen and Boulder in Colorado. Research results indicate that the motivations for climate change planning and subsequent initiatives vary because of differences in a community\'s orthodox and supplementary factors.
