This week, the United Nations has been meeting in New York for its Climate Summit, enlisting the world to work together on a problem that’s too big for any one country to solve.
We think this talk by Nicholas Stern is recommended watching for secondary students of the RACV Energy Breakthrough program. It covers Stern’s views on the current state of the climate and what we might do about it.
(It might help to prepare you for the Display & Presentation component of the event too).

Nicholas Stern helped write the delegates’ report that outlines where we the world is now — and what we could do next. He studies the economics of climate change. It’s a big vision for cooperation, with a payoff that goes far beyond averting disaster.
Here asks: How can we use this crisis to spur better lives for all? What might lead to an ‘Energy Breakthrough’?
