Costs Of Climate Change Being Massively Underestimated, Researchers State

Thu, 07/03/2014 - 08:24
Source: CleanTechnica - The myriad costs of future climate change are being greatly underestimated, according to a new paper recently published in The Economic Journal. Written by Nicholas Stern and Simon Dietz of the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, the report warns that previous estimates on the potential costs of climate change are likely to be very far off the approaching reality — largely as the result of outdated economic models, and ineffective carbon-trading programs that undercharge polluters for their emissions.

Asia must lead on climate change

Thu, 07/03/2014 - 07:44
Source: Bangkok Post - [By José Ramos-Horta & Mohamed Nasheed] For decades, Asian leaders largely ignored climate change. It's a Western problem, we said. They caused the problem by dumping greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere; let them clean it up. We were not responsible for the pollution, we argued; so we should not have to pay for it.
