Prof Ian Gough presents his new book: Heat, Greed and Human Need: Climate change, capitalism and sustainable wellbeing.

Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. It contains within it two key concepts: 1) the concept of ‘needs’, and 2) the idea of limitations. (Brundtland Report).

This paper summarises some of the arguments in my forthcoming book, Heat, Greed and Human Need: Climate change, capitalism and sustainable wellbeing.
