Climate One

Published on Jan 6, 2014

Lord Nicholas Stern discusses how we can change minds and political will surrounding climate change when science and facts fail to do so. Lord Stern believes that we need to make it clear that the risks are enormous, and to exhibit change that is attractive. “We can’t give out, we can’t just say, ‘Oh, this political will stuff is all too difficult.
