Wirth opens Investor Summit on Climate Risk

Former Senator Tim Wirth, and UN Foundation President, is now opening the UN Investor Summit. His message: we are on schedule to finish negotiations on a successor regime to Kyoto in Copenhagen in 2009, and a big part of that process is understanding and making the economic case. He says, “Industry groups tends to be way out in front of the political leadership, and a big help in bringing that leadership along.” He’s now introducing climate scientist and Harvard professor John Holdren to give the lay of the land on climate change and set the stage for the summit.
