Conclusion The Next Steps

This chapter began the analysis of the norms-based approach to GG in earnest. The verbal model fully specifies how and why the observed transitions in global responses for ozone depletion and climate change occurred. However, the verbal model is only the first step—it is merely a conjecture, a candidate explanation for the empirical pattern. The next stages of the analysis formally and empirically test the verbal model; demonstrating that there is an abundance of evidence to support this candidate explanation.
