Earthscan will be featuring him in a panel discussion, which will include ecological economists Robert Costanza of the University of Vermont and Peter Victor of York University.
The webcast will tale place at 12.00pm EST on November 25. To register for the webcast, go to: www.earthscan.co.uk/earthcasts. You’ll also find an archive of past webcasts there and some excellent Power Point slides from past presentations, three of which focused on climate change topics.
