Abstract

This article explores two interrelated research objectives. First, it seeks to understand how local governments regulate climate change. Second, it examines the motivations for participation in urban climate change programs. Results show a preference for policies that rely on changes in individual behavior, economic incentives, and federal inaction on local government justification for climate-related policies. It concludes with a discussion of urban climate governance as part of a wider sys-tem of neoliberal climate governance in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington
