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.
