Lord Stern – Billions could die!

August 6, 2009

Lord Stern is the respected economist who was commissioned by Tony Blair and Gordon Brown to assess the impact of climate change on the world’s economy. When he reported in 2006 he recommended that investing 1% of global GDP would be enough to avoid the worst consequences, but that delay could cost the world 20% of its wealth. Now, at a major speech in Brighton, he told the audience that we could expect widespread conflict if nothing were done. As lands become flooded or turn to desert more and more people will compete for fewer and fewer resources and war will be inevitable.
