Viewpoint: Taking the money out of climate change

By Lenore Fahrig

Editor’s note: Do you agree or disagree with this viewpoint? You are welcome to argue and support your position with evidence (in a submission not exceeding 800 words.)

The climate is changing and it’s changing fast. That’s according to the latest UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report.

In a world of more than 7 billion people, intensifying climate change in the coming decades will mean horrendous human suffering on a scale never seen before. To quote the Reverend Stephen Croft of England, “The threat of climate change is a giant evil, a great demon of our day.
