Path to a Sustainable Civilisation: The Myth of Growth podcast

Rod Taylor has developed a site for podcasts about sustainability from various people. It is titled ‘Rethinking Sustainability‘.

I recorded a short podcast for the series, in which I look at the contradictions of our contemporary fixation on economic growth and some of the flawed and simplistic public narratives about critical societal issues. I particularly call for a more nuanced discussion about energy and ‘renewables’, recognising that solar and wind energy also have environmental and social impacts. Growth is the key factor that is driving and exacerbating our contemporary existential environmental crises, but which is rarely discussed.

My podcast is The Myth of Growth.
