Climate Treaties and Approaching Catastrophes

Download: Audio, Slides

Speaker(s): Professor Scott Barrett
Chair: Professor Eric Neumayer

Recorded on 12 March 2012 in New Theatre, East Building.

Professor Barrett discusses whether the prospect of approaching climate catastrophes makes international cooperation on climate change any easier, and examines how the international system is likely to respond to the future crossing of a 'climate tipping point'.

Scott Barrett is the Lenfest-Earth Institute Professor of Natural Resource Economics at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs and the Earth Institute.
