Robert Reich and Dan Kammen – Inequality, Climate change, & the economy


Published on Dec 3, 2013

While increasing energy usage by the largest nations in the world drives the global economy, the resulting burden of climate change is heaviest on the poorest people in the most fragile countries. At the same time, inequality is widespread globally; even in America, 42% of children born into poverty will stay in poverty for their entire lives. How can we address global poverty and climate change while building a strong world economy?

Former Secretary of Labor and Chancellor’s Professor of Public Policy at the Goldman School of Public Policy, Professor Robert Reich, and Daniel Kammen, Class of 1935 Distinguished Professor of Energy & Director of Renewable and Appropriate Energy Laboratory (RAEL), speak about income inequality, climate and energy policy, and the way forward.
