My keynote address to the 4th Global Change Conference, with 600 delegates most of whom are students. Minister of Science and Technology opened the conference. I attempted in this talk to address a theme that infuses the new book I am writing, namely how mainstream neo-classical economics contradicts the scientific consensus about climate change, ecosystem services and resource flows, and why we need a shift to non-equilibrium economics. It was very well received. Have a listen.
