Chapter 12 begins by revisiting climate change as a wicked problem, and considers strategies to deal with problems characterized by ambiguity and intractability. Attention then turns to considering ethical or moral principles that have underlined, or should underlie, resource and environmental management, with particular attention to greenwashing, greenlashing, and shame campaigns. Subsequently, leadership and followership are examined, since both are essential for effective resource and environmental management. Detailed examples include the experience with the Deepwater Horizon oil rig spill in the Gulf of Mexico, shame campaigns focused on Home Depot regarding its selling of old-growth forest products and on jewelers related to No Dirty Gold, and the American West regarding a major community-based collaborative conservation initiative. Cecilia Tortajada’s guest statement focuses on the role of governance. She argues that we need to understand change, drivers, impacts, and directions, as well as the role of disruptive technologies.
