Climate Crunch: making the economics fit the science

LSE Sustainability in Practice lecture,co-hosted by the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment


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?

Jonathon Porritt is a writer, broadcaster and commentator. He co-founded Forum for the Future and is co-director of The Prince of Wales’s Business and Environment Programme.
