Hello everyone,

I'm researching the social construction of argumentation in the current debates over global warming and climate change.  I'm wondering whether anyone could point me towards work that looks at how arguments are socially constructed and deployed by collectives (i.e., organizations, institutions, 'discourse coalitions') as opposed to individuals? 

Thanks very much,
Graham
