Professor Clive Hamilton explores the balances being struck between environmental protection and economic growth in the context of the current advice from climate scientists. He also argues that our preoccupation with economic growth is inconsistent with protecting the Earth from severe damage due to global warming.
Clive Hamilton is Charles Sturt Professor of Public Ethics at the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics. Until 2008 he was the Executive Director of The Australia Institute, Australia’s foremost progressive think tank.
