Post Carbon Fellow Paul Gilding warned Global businesses leaders of the "carbon bubble" inherent in fossil fuels investment.
From the article:
Members of the WBCSD include global business giants such as Toyota, General Electric, BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto and Shell. Wednesday's meeting was expected to include addresses by United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and South Korean President Lee Myung-bak.
Mr Gilding author of "The Great Disruption," said his invitation to speak at the event reflected a shift taking place in business circles. "My message would have been too radical for them five years ago, whereas now it's sort of the centrepiece of the opening," he said.
