C3 Views;Apr2009, Issue 27, p6
The article focuses on the comments of Peter Brown, professor at McGill University's School of Environment and Geography Department, on worldwide efforts for a green economy. Brown states that rather than just focus on things like forging a carbon-reduced economy, all need to perhaps drastically realign economic activities to what the planet can ecologically sustain. According to him, the current economic crisis should be directly connected with the climate-change crisis.
