"The Trillion-Dollar Cost of Climate Inaction"
Quick hit: Here is the link for a study that is now getting a lot of media attention: “Climate Change – the Costs of Inaction,” by leading economists at the Global Development and Environment Institute at Tufts University in the U.S. for The Big Ask, Friends of the Earth’s climate campaign.
You can read the press release, “ECONOMISTS WARN CLIMATE CHANGE WILL COST WORLD TRILLIONS IF GOVERNMENTS FAIL TO ACT,” here.
I just wanted to do a quick post because I had trouble finding the actual study, and wanted to save CP readers some time. The study makes clear that the cost of inaction is far, far, far higher than the cost of action, a major point of Climate Progress.
