Dans l’urgence climatique

Book published by Gallimard and overseen by Groupe d’études géopolitiques (GEG)

By: Date: March 22, 2022 Topic: Green economy

La crise climatique est au centre de l’actualité de notre planète. Elle fonde les politiques nouvelles qu’il faut d’urgence mettre en œuvre et constitue un défi vertigineux pour les générations futures. Souvent perçue comme trop technique ou complexe, la transition énergétique est pourtant au cœur des solutions et nécessite des données, des analyses et des interprétations étayées.

Cet ouvrage collectif vise à « jouer cartes sur table » en croisant les éclairages fournis par l’économie, l’histoire, les relations internationales et la science politique. En douze chapitres, des universitaires français et européens, de générations et de disciplines différentes, proposent une synthèse des réflexions actuelles sur la transition énergétique en France et dans le monde.

Un ouvrage du Groupe d’études géopolitiques, dirigé par Michel Derdevet, coordonné par Clémence Pèlegrin, avec la participation de Christophe Bonnery, Dirk Buschle, Joseph Cacciari, Pierre Charbonnier, Anna Creti, Charlotte Gardes, Patrice Geoffron, Sophie Hou, Carlo Invernizzi Accetti, Jan Horst Keppler, Annabelle Livet, Nicolas Mazzucchi, Angélique Palle, Jacques Percebois, Christian de Perthuis, Boris Solier, Aurianne Stroude, Simone Tagliapietra et Jean-Baptiste Vaujour.

English translation:

The climate crisis is at the centre of today’s news. It is the basis for the new policies that must be implemented urgently and constitutes a challenge for future generations. Often perceived as too technical or complex, the energy transition is nevertheless at the heart of the solutions and requires data, analyses and supported interpretations.

This collective work aims to “put all the cards on the table” by combining the insights provided by economics, history, international relations and political science. In twelve chapters, French and European academics from different generations and disciplines offer a synthesis of current thinking on the energy transition in France and around the world.

A publication by the ‘Groupe d’études géopolitiques’ (GEG), overseen by Michel Derdevet, coordinated by Clémence Pèlegrin, with the participation of Christophe Bonnery, Dirk Buschle, Joseph Cacciari, Pierre Charbonnier, Anna Creti, Charlotte Gardes, Patrice Geoffron, Sophie Hou, Carlo Invernizzi Accetti, Jan Horst Keppler, Annabelle Livet, Nicolas Mazzucchi, Angélique Palle, Jacques Percebois, Christian de Perthuis, Boris Solier, Aurianne Stroude, Simone Tagliapietra and Jean-Baptiste Vaujour.

Europe’s sustainable taxonomy is a sideshow
