Climate Change: Hope for the Best, Prepare for the Worst

View Slide Presentation

Most scientists agree that it is too late to prevent significant changes in the climate caused by the accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. While it is more important than ever to reduce emissions, policymakers must begin to think about adaptation to the consequences of warming -- extreme rainfall cycles, rising sea levels and biological dislocation. This panel will explore a variety of means for managing the risks, ranging from enhanced market-based insurance and big infrastructure projects to bioengineering. And it will tackle the thorny question of who should pay the bills in both rich and poor countries, along with how to raise the necessary revenue with minimal economic disruption.
