My op-ed on climate change and economic growth, published two years ago

Solving the Climate Crisis Means Reconsidering Economic Growth

By Carmelo Ruiz-Marrero, Oct. 16, 2013

De-growth is already under discussion in Europe and in some circles in Latin America. The proposal is not new. Economists like Serge Latouche of France, Joan Martinez-Alier of Spain and Herman Daly of the United States have written extensively about it. And there are new thinkers joining the fray, like economists Tim Jackson and Peter Victor, who are inviting us to consider prosperity without growth.
We should get used to the idea that we cannot have both an environmentally sound economy running on renewable energy and an endlessly growing economy.

We need to re-examine what we mean by growth and what we mean by prosperity, while we still have time.
