Bjorn Lomborg wants to redefine climate change's impact on our lives and economy

On GZERO World, Ian Bremmer challenges controversial climate author Bjorn Lomborg on whether his perspective on climate would be different if he were going to live for 200 years instead of the typical 85. But Lomborg holds fast in his belief that though climate change will affect the trajectory of human progress, it won’t lead to the most dire predictions forecast by climate scientists. Instead of searching for a panacea, Lomborg says the world should focus on policies that address climate change in the most cost-effective and efficient ways.

Philanthropy's moment to act

Note: This interview appeared as part of an episode of GZERO World with Ian Bremmer, "Inequality isn't inevitable - if global communities cooperate" on January 29, 2023.

And 2022 was the sixth warmest year on record since 1880. We are still dealing with the fallout from all three events. But not equally. Since 2020, the richest 1% of people has accumulated nearly two-thirds of all the new wealth created in the world.
