About this book

Neumayer (environment and development, London School of Economics and Political Science) assesses whether science can unambiguously endorse either the weak approach, which argues that capital generated by humans can be substituted for natural capital and still maintain long-term sustainability, and the strong approach that it cannot. He argues that neither paradigm is universally correct and that certain forms of natural capital are non sustainable; explores the extent to which, at what cost, certain forms of natural capital should be preserved; and inquires whether sustainability can be measured at all and doubts a monetary measure will suffice.
