The invisible infrastructure of climate change


In our fight to avoid dangerous climate change, science is pulling its punches, diplomacy is picking the wrong battles, and economics has been fighting for the other side.

Simon Sharpe is Director of Economics for the UN Climate Champions, currently focusing on international collaboration to accelerate emissions cuts.
