Risky Business: The Economic Risks of Climate Change with Sol Hsiang -- In the Living Room with Henry E. Brady - UC Public Policy Channel

9/15/2014; 28 minutes

UC Berkeley economist Sol Hsiang details the economic risks of climate change -- region by region -- with expected jumps in mortality rates, violent crime, worker fatigue and energy consumption as the days become hotter throughout the United States. Hsiang was co-lead author of the American Climate Prospectus, the risk analysis study that led to "The Risky Business Report: The Economic Risks of Climate Change in the United States," the bipartisan research initiative commissioned by financiers Henry Paulson, Tom Steyer and Michael Bloomberg. Using national maps that illustrate the range of the rising heat, Hsiang explains the importance of understanding these potential impacts in this conversation with Henry E. Brady, dean of the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley, as part of the "In the Living Room" interview series. Recorded on 08/12/2014. (#28511)
