Climate Crunch: making the economics fit
Speaker(s): Jonathon Porritt
Chair: Professor Eric Neumayer
Recorded on 4 February 2010 in Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House.
At the beginning of this new decade more people in the US and UK remain unpersuaded by the science of climate change than this time last year. Could it be that people have spotted the yawning gap between the politicians' apocalyptic rhetoric and the bland lifestyle advice to change your light bulbs or drive more slowly? What if there's no solution to climate change without freeing ourselves from our obsession with economic growth?
