Gabrielle Walker is an expert on climate change and the energy industry. She holds a Ph.D. in Natural Sciences from Cambridge University and has taught at Cambridge and Princeton Universities. She is the author of four books, most recently, Antarctica: An Intimate Portrait of a Mysterious Continent and the best-selling The Hot Topic:
What We Can Do About Global Warming (co-written with David King). She is currently Chief Scientist at Xyntéo, an advisory firm that seeks to enable businesses to grow in a manner which is responsive to the resource, climate, and demographic challenges of the 21st century. From dwindling resources and a volatile climate to persistent inequality and societal upheaval, the signs are clear: we need to reinvent growth. First, the new growth model must generate value for the many, instead of a small elite...Second, we must stop sacrificing the living standards of future generations to preserve today’s wastefulness. And third, we must rebalance the relationship between mankind and nature, so that prosperity need no longer involve laying waste to the environment that ultimately sustains us.
