Ferenčuhová, Slavomíra

This article informs about the results of an ongoing sociological research on local responses to climate change that appear in the Czech context. The argument departs from a qualitative analysis of in-depth interviews with experts whose professional work relates to researching or informing about climate change and to formulation of adaptation measures and responses to climate change, or to environmental policy-making in general.

Kapitola v knize propojuje teoretické debaty o pojmu „veřejného prostoru“ s aktuálním tématem reálných nebo možných vlivů klimatické změny na život a podobu měst. Diskutuje, nakolik se tato nová environmentální situace potenciálně promítá do pojetí veřejného prostoru v politickém rozhodování na úrovni měst, a také do konceptu veřejného prostoru v sociologické teorii města. Kapitola je určena i čtenářům mimo obor sociologie.

This ar-ticle focuses on the issue of climate change scepticism among the inhabitants of the Czech Republic and pursues two objectives: to compare climatechangescepticism of Czechciti-zens with citizens of other European countries and to examine the relationship between indi-vidual characteristics of Czech citizens and their opinion on climate change. For this pur-pose, the concepts of epistemic scepticism and response scepticism areemployed.
