Combating Carbon in an Economic Crisis

Global Policy public discussion

The event will focus on two key questions: Has the economic crisis irrevocably undermined the world’s chances of successfully addressing climate change? Or are the investment opportunities such that the private sector can still prevent an environmental disaster?

Global Policy brings together three leading experts to discuss these questions as the global economy remains gripped in crisis and we head, seemingly inexorably, to a world which will be at least two degrees centigrade warmer on average.

Tom Burke is founding director of E3G.

Avinash Persaud is emeritus professor of Gresham College.

Suggested hashtag for this event for Twitter users: #lsecarbon
