A good introduction to this course …

To get a sense of what this course is all about, you might like to listen to ABC Radio’s Background Briefing report on: The Business of Climate Change, broadcast on 16/10/05 (49 mins). There is an Australian focus, but the principles are more widely applicable. You can listen on your iPod, or MP3 player, or download (right click) the programme (23MB) to your computer and listen on Microsoft Media Player. Alternatively, simply read the transcript.

    About Financial aspects & Global Warming
    If people don’t want to be aware of the issue of Global warming from a scientific point of view they will do it from a financial point of View.
    Indeed recent hurricanes in the United States faced the business fields, Assurance funds, Institutional investors with the problem of disruption in ecosystems. Because of the frequence of storms and its increasing strenght, Insurance funds have to modify their standards, the way they pay for disasters. The amounts are more and more important because the disasters go on increasing.
    Insurance funds, Investors,etc., which are very influent in all big industries and many economics, fields would have to find solutions to save money and avoid to pay so much. The obvious long term solution seems to be curving global warming in order to reduce its effects on climate.
