Achim Steiner, Executive Director of UNEP, writes "Challenge for The Global Green New Deal"

December 3, 2008

Achim Steiner, Executive Director of UNEP, writes "Challenge for The Global Green New Deal"

Mr Achim Steiner, Executive Director of UNEP, posts his regular article in the asahi.com web site.

"As governments wrestle with the current financial crisis, some familiar voices are being raised--ones that argue that combating climate is now too costly for an over-stretched over-stressed global economy.

Deal with the economic challenges of today and put climate change on the back burner for a better tomorrow--but that would be a fundamental mistake of enormous and perhaps inter-generational proportions.

While stock markets have been falling often at record rates, emissions of the principle greenhouse gas have also broken records. Figures release in November say CO2 rose 0.5 per cent between 2006 and 2007 and now close to 40 per cent higher than 25 years ago."
