Description

Can capitalism be a part of the solution? Could social pressure rather than laws be what compels us to become more 'green'? Crimes against the environment take many forms, but it is a complex area of criminology. This excellent program, presented by Dr Steven Taylor, explores green crime and includes interviews with experts Dr Gary Potter and Dr Matt Follett. It introduces transgressive criminology and the wider concept of harm, which can be applied to problems like rainforest destruction and global warming. It looks at how Marxism and Beck's late modern concept of risk can be applied to crimes against the environment, and investigates the paradox of economic growth and consumption versus the need to curb global warming and deforestation.
