Description

ICHEM and CBOS Seminar

Heat, Greed and Human Need: Climate Change, Capitalism and Sustainable Wellbeing

Professor Ian Gough - Visiting Professor, London School of Economics: Centre for the Analysis of Social Exclusion (CASE)

This lecture asks how far can dangerous global warming be averted, without worsening deprivation and inequality. I argue that the satisfaction of human needs – as opposed to wants – is the only viable measure for negotiating trade-offs between climate change and human wellbeing, now and in the future. A transition is proposed, moving from ‘green growth’ to ‘recomposing’ patterns of consumption in the rich world, cutting high-energy luxuries in favour of low-energy routes to meeting basic needs. This, in turn, can prepare the way if necessary for an economy that flourishes without growth.
