Solving climate change isn’t expensive

Do you remember the Stern Report on climate change ? Back to 2008, it became famous for noting that inaction would cost a fifth of Mankind’s wealth and that solving climate change would cost only ONE percent.

Now, the Committee on Climate Change  corroborates the findings by stating that the United Kingdom could slash its emissions by 80 percent by 2050 with only one or two percent of GDP.

Solving our civilization with only one or two tiny percent of our fortune ? Isn’t it the kind of affair we can’t refuse ? Let’s jump on the occasion while we still can. (via Mother Jones and Grist)
