This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Public Responses to Fossil Fuel Export provides wide-ranging theoretical and methodological international contributions on the human dimensions of fossil fuel export, with a distinctive focus on more recent exporting countries. What do members of the public think about exporting fossil fuels in places where it is happening? What do they see as its main risks and benefits? What connections are being made to climate change and the impending energy transition, if any? How might these assessments of fossil fuel export differ by geographic scale? How have those communities most affected responded to proposals related to fossil fuel export, broadly defined to include transport by rail, pipeline, ship, etc.? Contributions to the work are presented in three parts based on geographic scope and research method. The first part synopsizes the background of the project and outlines major social science theories as well as fossil fuel export technologies, fuel types, and trends. Regional and national case studies related to public opinion on fossil fuel export are included in Part 2 of the manuscript. Part three addresses community-based case studies and comparative case studies of proposed export projects around the world based on qualitative or mixed methods. Theoretical and practical implications, with comparison and integration between chapters, feature in the concluding chapter. Serves as a definitive reference on the social dimensions of fossil fuel export, bringing together case examples and public opinion research from around the world on this important but understudied issue Explores broader implications for growing field of energy social science, particularly those focused on public perceptions of energy development, siting controversies and community impacts from energy development Provides practical and policy implications including the need for better community inclusion in export and transport facility siting decisions, the changing status of certain fuels and the impact on public awareness, and the relevance of the movement of energy resources (not just extraction and consumption) for understanding public response to energy transitions
