The British Academy Lecture: Why Are We Waiting? The Logic, Urgency and Promise of Tackling Climate Change

Hay Festival 2015 , 

The risks and costs of climate change are worse than estimated in the landmark Stern Review in 2006; and far worse than implied by standard economic models. The science warns of the dangers of neglect; the economics and technology show what we can do and the great benefits that will follow; an examination of the ethics points strongly to a moral imperative for action. Why are we waiting? Chaired by the science correspondent of ITV News.
