This is also a good way to let Subscribers know that I'm working on a large consulting project on this very issue--the extent to which humanity, and the finance sector in particular, has underestimated the dangers of climate change, thanks to the appallingly bad work done on it by Neoclassical economists (including so-called "Nobel Prize Winner" William Nordhaus, who comes in for special mention in this 5 minute interview).
The consultancy will take me a month or more to complete, and I may be less productive on here than I normally am. But it is all for a good cause, and the report and the other materials I produce as a result of the consultancy will be publicly available.
