What Would it Take to Reach a Climate Agreement?

Since the 1990s, the world has been relying on negotiations through the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to deliver an effective climate agreement. Geoffrey Heal, a coordinating lead author of the IPCC and professor of social enterprise at Columbia Business School, argues it is impossible for this approach to succeed.
On November 20, he joins SCEPA to present an Economics of Climate Change lecture to discuss politically realistic alternatives to the climate problem.
Heal is noted for contributions to economic theory and resource and environmental economics. His recent books include Nature and the Marketplace, Valuing the Future, When Principles Pay and Whole Earth Economics (forthcoming).
