It’s Getting Hot in Here: Climate Change

by iMFdirect

World leaders are meeting in Paris to forge a new climate deal.  We interviewed two  leading thinkers on climate, Nick Stern and Christiana Figueres.

In this podcast, Nick Stern, Professor of Economics and Government at the London School of Economics, says the world is not yet on the two degree path as carbon emissions continue to rise. Stern is author of “The Low-Carbon Road” in the December issue of Finance & Development.

Back in October, we caught up with Christiana Figueres, head of the United Nations framework convention on climate change, when she was in Lima, Peru for the IMF’s Annual Meetings. In this podcast, Figueres talks about the priorities and obstacles as world leaders prepared to present their plans to reduce carbon emissions.
