ABSTRACT
The author discusses the Stern Review, a study commissioned by the British government and headed by British economist Sir Nicholas Stern, which summarized scientific findings on climate change. The study concludes that rising average temperatures constitute a serious global threat meriting immediate and drastic action. According to the author, the Stern Review has been praised by environmentalists but received critically by more than a few of the leading climate-change economists.
