Former World Bank Chief Economist on Climate: "I Hope Historians Will See This as a Turning Point"

submitted by Climate Change:How Skewed Are We...Reall on 06/26/16 1

In 2006, Lord Nicholas Stern, the prominent British climate economist and former chief economist of the World Bank, published a pioneering report, "The Stern Review on the Economics of Climate Change." We speak to Lord Stern about where we stand almost a decade after he published the nearly 700-page report and what he would like to see come out of COP21. "I hope historians will see this as a turning point, that the world got together to change direction to say we are now moving together towards the low-carbon economy, that this is the great story of the future," Stern says. "This is the way that we can get secure growth. This is the way we can get clean growth."
