The following essay on “How to pay for climate change” was written by J. Paul Horne, a member of the GIC’s board of directors, at the invitation of David R. Kotok, founder of Cumberland Advisors and GIC board member. It triggered various responses including the subsequent point and counterpoint with Bob Bunting, a member of the GIC and CEO of The Climate Adaptation Center in Sarasota, FL which has made presentations to the GIC. The link to the IEA’s new global energy analysis of climate change is included at the end of this report. The GIC invites further comments about climate change.
