Description

ICHEM, CBOS and IPR 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. Implications for business and higher education institutions will be outlined.
