Climate Change, Inequality and Time Use: Double-Dividend Approaches to Emission Reduction


Juliet Schor, Professor of Sociology, Boston College, USA

Author of many books including Plenitude; The Overworked American; and The Overspent American. Researcher into time, consumption and sustainability.

In this talk Professor Schor will discuss a series of papers that look at two variables that have received little attention in the discussions of emissions reductions: domestic concentrations of income and wealth, and working hours. We find strong relationships between inequality, time use and emissions at a variety of scales (global, OECD, and US cross-state). This line of research suggests the possibility of double-dividend policies that will reduce inequality, working hours, and emissions.
