Innovation & Entrepreneurship in the Time of Climate Change
A UNU G8 Symposium - Part 2
The global response to climate change now will shape the world for future generations; indeed, it may quite possibly determine whether there are future generations. Climate change presents a clear and present danger to both the natural world that sustains us and our accustomed ways of life, but amid the turmoil and uncertainty facing humanity lie tremendous opportunities for innovation, entrepreneurship and investment.
Just over 20 years to the day after Dr. James E. Hansen presented congressional testimony that alerted the world to the threat of climate change, Dr. Hansen, Head of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies and perhaps the world’s most well known climate scientist, provided the keynote address at this UNU G8 symposium where he was be joined by a panel of the world’s leading experts and writers on the subject.
