Jorgen Randers was a fresh-faced PhD student in physics at MIT when he co-wrote The Limits to Growth, the short but seminal work for the Club of Rome on resource depletion, spawning the sustainability movement.

In 40 ”deeply demotivating years” in academia, the professor of climate strategy at the Norwegian business school has lived every failed phase of the effort to inspire action to head off climate change and resource depletion.

Professor Randers supports ”eco-dictatorship” in the form of a global executive body with the authority to tell nations how much greenhouse gas they are permitted to emit.Sydney Morning Herald, 6 Nov 2012
