This chapter explores the linkages among sustainable development, limits and growth. It argues that sustainable development requires a shift in the societal development trajectory to pay attention both to environmental limits and to global equity. Only by appreciating the intimate linkages between environment and development will it be possible to open a pathway towards continued social advance while respecting the boundaries of local, regional and global ecosystems. Economic growth can contribute to sustainable development, but all ‘growth’ does not represent real social advance. In particular, growth in physical pressures threatening global biodiversity and climate change must be brought under control.

Caching the Carbon

The Politics and Policy of Carbon Capture and Storage

Edited by James Meadowcroft and Oluf Langhelle

Over the past decade carbon capture and storage (CCS) has increasingly come to the fore as a possible option to manage carbon dioxide emissions that are currently contributing to human induced climate change. This book is concerned with the politics of CCS. The authors examine the way CCS has been brought into the political realm, the different interpretations of the significance of this emerging technology, and the policy challenges government and international institutions face with respect to its development, deployment and regulation. The book includes case studies of engagement with CCS in a number of developed countries as well as more thematically focused analysis.
