Addressing Climate Change and Economic Growth: Are they compatible?

Presented by Dale Eisler, Senior Policy Fellow, JSGS

Beginning October 31st, approximately 25,000 people representing more than 200 nations gathered in Glasgow, Scotland to tackle yet again the climate challenge facing the world. The Conference of the Parties, known as COP 26, has set four goals. Clearly the most important and overarching is for the world to reach net zero emissions by 2050 so that we can limit the increase in the global temperature to 1.5 degrees Celsius. It presents a herculean task. Based on the evidence of the last four decades following the first such climate summit in 1979, there is little reason for optimism.
