Clive Hamilton

Until early 2008 Clive Hamilton was the Executive Director of The Australia Institute, Australia’s leading progressive think tank, which he founded in 1993. He has held a number of visiting academic positions, including at the University of Cambridge, Yale University and the University of Oxford.

He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts and in June 2009 was made a Member of the Order of Australia. Clive is the author of a number of best-selling books, including Growth Fetish, Affluenza (with Richard Denniss), Silencing Dissent (with Sarah Maddison), and Scorcher: The dirty politics of climate change. His most recent book is Requiem for a Species: Why we resist the truth about climate change, published in 2010.
