There is now clear scientific evidence that emissions from human activities, particularly the burning of fossil fuels for energy, are causing changes to the earth's climate. A sound understanding of the economics of climate change is a crucial underpinning to an effective global response to this challenge.

Sir Nicholas Stern, Head of the UK Government Economic Service and former World Bank Chief Economist, recently published his Review of the Economics of Climate Change following its commissioning by the Chancellor of the Exchequer in July 2005.

This event is free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first served basis.
