The Verso Book Club Podcast: Brett Christophers - The Price is Wrong

VersoBooks · Verso Book Club Podcast | Brett Christophers


We're thrilled to announce the launch of our new Verso Book Club Podcast! This addition to our podcast feed offers an exclusive opportunity for book club members to engage with authors directly. Hosted by Eleanor Penny, the Verso Podcast Channel brings you insightful discussions that dive into the core of our featured books.

In his fresh analysis of the relationship between markets and the green energy transition, Brett Christophers argues that the reason we are moving too slowly toward sustainability is not due to renewables being too expensive, but rather because saving the planet is not sufficiently profitable.

Verso Book Club members can submit questions to be answered on the podcast by our authors every month!
