The Politics of Climate Change
Lord Giddens, Professor Emeritus, LSE Global Governance
Chair: Fiona Harvey, Environment Correspondent, Financial Times
Climate change is an issue quite unlike any other we have to cope with on a global level, since it is about future risk and filtered through the findings of science, which are largely inaccessible to the layperson. The speaker will ask how the international community can create an effective approach to containing the dangers facing us, in a world which lacks effective institutions of global governance, and where the public in many countries is unconvinced of the urgency of the situation.
