Policy and politics enter the stage once a perceived environmental threat has been identified. Disputes arise, are mediated and settled as interest groups manoeuvre, usually through the state, to gain desired outcomes. Hajer3 takes issue with this type of ‘interest-based’ analysis. He argues that in order to understand the evolution and significance of any environmental issue it is necessary to examine not only which solutions were advocated and implemented, but also how the issue came to be viewed as an ‘environmental problem’ in the first place.

B. H. WHETTON However, as Jones et al. 86 Monte Carlo sampling of the ranges of global warming sensitivity, ranges of greenhouse gas emissions and regional climate changes, can be multiplied together to create a probability distribution which is not uniform. For example, Figure 6 shows the probability distribution of regional warming for the northern coast of Australia in 2030. 04°C. The resultant distribution is peaked, with the extremes of the range being far less likely than the values surrounding the median.

This more traditional policy discourse was also reflected in the framing of the relation between the environment and economy, which indicated that pollution prevention might incur costs. In the early construction of the ‘greenhouse story-line,’ tensions between uncertainty and precaution, and between economic objectives and environmental values were written into, rather than out of, policy discourses.
