Описание:Using complexity theory and trans-disciplinary science, Geoff Evans explores the dialectics of transformation across linked socio-ecological systems, and identifies principles and political action needed to achieve a just transition sustainability and climate justice - locally and globally. The research highlights the critical role of boosting resilience and adaptive capacity, public investment in the industries of the future, and of alliances between the climate justice, environment and labour movements. How can a region that is climate change hot-spot, and home of the world' s largest coal export port make a transition from ' Carbon Valley' to a future ' Beyond Coal' ? In Australia' s Hunter Valley, community distress about the cumulative local ecological and human health impacts of mines and power stations and alarm about global climate change has given rise to a vocal, growing and globally-linked social movement that is challenging the rule of King Coal, and demanding a transition from historic coal dependency to a clean energy economy. He outlines key principles for just transition to an ecological economy that protects vulnerable communities during times of change.

The World in 2050: Four Forces Shaping Civilization's Northern Future

Out of perhaps seven million eukaryote species found on Earth, nearly half of all vascular plants and one-third of vertebrates are confined to just twenty-five imperiled БЂњhot spots,БЂ« mostly in the tropics and comprising just 1.4% of the worldБЂ™s land surface.307 Even in the far North, a specialized ecosystem adapted to frigid cold will be under attack by advancing southern competitors, pests, and disease. It is possible that the vast boreal forestБЂ”girdling the northern high latitudes from Canada to SiberiaБЂ”might convert to a more open, savannah-like state.308 But total primary productivityБЂ”meaning plant biomass, the bottom of the food chainБЂ”will be ramping up. Certain mobile southern invaders will enjoy growing viability in a vast new territory that is larger, less fragmented, and less polluted than where they came from. Longer, deeper penetration of sunlight into the sea (owing to less shading by sea ice) will trigger more algal photosynthesis, again increasing primary productivity and reverberating throughout the Arctic marine food web ...»

Business Practice can be Changed via the Dispositions of Executives. Re-socialization towards Implicit Eco-sustainability
Re-socialization means altering their sentiments; changing not morals, but the collective ' habitus' of the executives, their dispositions – to put it into Bourdieu' s sociological notions used in the book (the doctoral thesis). The attempted synthesis of a more realistic portrayal of business reality also appeals to the ethos of Schein, Mintzberg, McCloskey, Keynes and Baudrillard. The processing of societal interests affected by corporations' conduct of business should be incorporated therein – into corporate decision-making, mindset and the interplay of micro-activities within the organization, the author posits.
