The economic impact of climate change

July 1, 2014

Guests: Robert Kopp, Kate Gordon

A bipartisan group of business leaders, economists, scientists, and former government officials is warning of the enormous costs that climate change will have on the U.S. economy. The Risky Business coalition, which includes former Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson and Michael Bloomberg, released a report quantifying the economic toll that stronger storms, higher seas, heat waves and droughts will have and they are pressing for action. Today Marty talks with two people who are involved in the project: ROBERT KOPP, Associate professor in the Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences at Rutgers University, and KATE GORDON, Executive Director of the Risky Business project.
