💬 “In 2006, Lord Nicholas stern was commissioned by the British government to estimate the economic price of climate change. Fixing climate change, he said at the time, would cost about 2% of world GDP. Everyone took a gasp. But then he continued, not fixing climate change would cost about 40% of world GDP.” @Michal Nachmany
