Julia Steinberger (University of Leeds) and Elena Hofferberth (University of Leeds)

In this talk, we first cover the (physical) science basis and the case for a climate emergency. Depending on the economic interpretation of the causal dynamics connecting fossil fuels and the economy, entirely different proposals for tackling climate breakdown are put forward. We will discuss green growth reformist proposals and contrast them with radical degrowth ones. We summarise the empirical evidence on either side of this debate. We explore the implications of current Green New Deal and Just Transition proposals. We end by encouraging a debate on the topic of which economic science is needed for our planetary future.

Speakers: Julia Steinberger (University of Leeds) and Elena Hofferberth (University of Leeds), Elisa Van Waeyenberge (SOAS)
