The Spirit of Green

Green in spirit

Issue 91 - summer 2021

William D. Nordhaus shows how one can best meet global challenges with “green thinking”.

William D. Nordhaus, Nobel Laureate and pioneer of climate economics, explains in his new work how and why “green thinking” could help solve major challenges facing our planet - from global warming to environmental damage to pandemics. The Yale economics professor does not remain abstract, but offers specific solutions - such as how to best price carbon dioxide, support the development of climate-friendly technologies, promote international cooperation through climate clubs or redesign tax systems.
