"Nicholas Stern: 'I got it wrong on climate change – it's far, far worse'"



Link to The Guardian

"Lord Stern, author of the government-commissioned review on climate change that became the reference work for politicians and green campaigners, now says he underestimated the risks, and should have been more 'blunt' about the threat posed to the economy by rising temperatures.

(yes, really)
"... Stern's comments came as Jim Yong Kim, the new president of the World Bank, also at Davos, gave a grave warning about the risk of conflicts over natural resources should the forecast of a four-degree global increase above the historical average prove accurate, saying:
"We have to find climate-friendly ways of encouraging economic growth. The good news is we think they exist.

... There is a lot of money to be made in building the technologies and bending the arc of climate change."
