Green Consumerism Will Not Save the Planet

NIAS Seminar

Journalist-in-residence Jaap Tielbeke will discuss his current book-in-progress on the politics of climate change.

We know we are disrupting our climate, we have known this for quite some time and still, we don’t seem to be able to change course. What is holding us back? To find an answer to this question we must, Tielbeke believes, look at the politics of climate change. The story of global warming is less about greenhouse gasses or melting ice caps, and all the more about power and ideology.
