Observing that the US Congress was able to reach agreement over support to the US banking sector within two weeks, Arno Behrens bemoans the fact that the US and other governments remain reluctant to contribute significantly to the global climate change bill. Instead of buying bad assets, however, he asserts that climate change mitigation is an investment in a global public good and in future prosperity. While cautioning against taking a hasty decision, he argues that there is a strong case to be made for increasing global resources for adaptation and mitigation with all due speed.
