Ecological debt

It was good to see the concept of ecological debt get some coverage yesterday. World goes into ‘ecological debt’, said the Telegraph, Recession barely dents ‘eco-debt’ said the BBC, while the Guardian warned of a Day of reckoning.

This is all the work of the new economics foundation, whose report ‘The Consumption Explosion’ came out on the same day, their third UK interdependence report. I read the last one two years ago. It was one of the most eye-opening reports I read all year, and I became a nef supporter off the back of it. I’ll be reading the latest one this week and I’ll tell you more about it in due course. Join me, and we can discuss it – you can download it here.
