What’s Science Got to Do with Climate Change?

Stephen Schneider, Professor of Interdisciplinary Environmental Studies, Stanford

Greg Dalton, Founder, Climate One

What risks does the changing climate pose to the global economy and how can we manage those risks? Rather than betting so much on a cap-and-trade regime for carbon pollution, Schneider says policymakers should fund more research to invent our way to a greener economy. Meanwhile, negotiators in Copenhagen need to cut a climate deal with real bite. “Targets without teeth solve nothing,” says Schneider.
