Be It Resolved: Climate Change is Mankind's Defining Crisis, And Demands a Commensurate Response...
December 1, 2009 | Toronto, Canada
C02 levels in the atmosphere are climbing steadily higher. Some believe this is having a devastating effect on humans and nature, while others argue that the threat has been overstated. Is this the moment for a bold international treaty to curb carbon emissions? Or, are the social and economic costs of reducing C02 emissions too high in world where a billion people live on a dollar or less a day?
Just days before the United Nation’s historic Copenhagen summit the Munk Debates will tackle one of the great public policy questions of our time: Climate change is mankind's defining crisis, and demands a commensurate response.

Elizabeth May (Leader, Green Party of Canada)
Bjørn Lomborg (Adjunct Professor, Copenhagen Business School)
Lord Nigel Lawson, Baron Lawson of Blaby (Former Chancellor of the Exchequer, United Kingdom)
Moderated by Rudyard Griffiths (Director, Munk Debates)
