For years, powerful forces have told us that the high cost of climate action will hurt the economy, while ignoring the costs of climate impacts. This strategy, focusing on just one side of a complex issue, is a classic form of disinformation.  Now the world’s financial institutions are coming to grips with the crippling economic risks caused by climate change and the loss of biodiversity. Learn about these risks and why financial institutions are concluding that it is better economic policy to curb climate change than to ignore it. The recognition by economists that climate action is a good investment is a necessary step to obtaining effective climate policy.
