Rising seas: A failure of economics to cut greenhouse emissions | Counting the Cost

Al Jazeera, 06 Mar 2021
Warnings about the consequences of climate change are arriving at an alarming pace.

Vulnerable countries will be the most affected, despite being the least responsible for climate change.

And it appears we may have miscalculated the way we measure rising sea levels and biodiversity in economics.

We talk to economist and University of Cambridge professor Sir Partha Dasgupta, as well as Aslak Grinsted, associate professor of Physics of Ice, Climate and Earth at the University of Copenhagen.

Plus, it has never been easy for women and ethnic minorities to access money for startups. We talk to Angelika Burawska, chief operating officer at SFC Capital.
