“Comment les économistes réchauffent la planète” d’Antonin Pottier
Posted on 14 September 2016

Published in 2016 after an insufficient Paris climate agreement, the book criticizes one of the key reasons of the repeated failure of the international climate negotiations: the biases and the tunnel vision of the dominant economic discourse. The economic doxa is an obstacle to the understanding of climate change, to the perception of the magnitude of the phenomena involved and to the invention of social solutions to prevent climate change and adapt to its consequences. The book addresses the themes of the economic discourse on the climate change by showing its dead ends, and proposes alternative approaches. A stimulating and well-informed essay by a young researcher, written in a thoroughly accessible style. Book presentation on the publisher website
