stop growth!

As the world meets in Cancun Mexico for the latest round of United Nations talk on climate change, the influential academics called for much tougher measures to cut carbon emissions.

In one paper Professor Kevin Anderson, Director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, said the only way to reduce global emissions enough \,while allowing the poor nations to continue to grow, is to halt economic growth in the rich world over the next twenty years.

“I’m not saying we have to go back to living in caves,” he said “Our emissions were a lot less ten years ago and we got by ok then.”
