IPCC Climate Talks: Tech and Limits to Growth

Ashley Kocsis, Bill Rees, Sydney Karbonik (CCYP)

Is sustainable development a contradiction? Is capitalism sustainable? Are their limits to economic growth? Will technology save us? Do individual actions matter at all?

This week on Terra Informa, we have two very different perspectives on these questions. At the Edmonton IPCC climate talks we spoke with Hoesung Lee, the Chair of the IPCC, and Bill Rees, Professor Emeritus from the University of British Columbia.

What’s Happening

On Tuesday, March 27,  a group of students at the University of Alberta are holding an event to get students from across faculties together to talk about the interdisciplinary challenges of climate change and sustainability. They will feature the UofA Chair of Anthropology, a Director from the Alberta Climate Change Office, and a Professor of Philosophy. At Terra Informa, we think it’s always great to bring different disciplines together!
