This project seeks to examine the miscommunications that arise in discussions concerning electricity deregulation and its environmental impact due to the participants' opposing discourses of environmental reality. Discourses dominant in the debate are analyzed, and interviews conducted with participants in the deregulation and environmental debate. The interview data is analyzed, with special emphasis on the different associational loads the concepts being debated must bear within each discourse. Recommendations are made on ways for participants to reach a mutually satisfactory consensus.
