In his talk Simon Sharpe will address this question by presenting ideas from his book ‘Five Times Faster: Rethinking the Science, Economics and Diplomacy of Climate Change’ (Cambridge University Press), which was listed by the Financial Times as one of the best books of 2023.

He will argue that science has fallen short of setting out the full scale of the risks; that economics has consistently given governments the wrong advice on policy decisions crucial to low carbon transitions; and that climate change diplomacy has been picking the wrong battles. He will propose that in all three fields, different ideas and institutions could enable much faster progress.
Simon Sharpe is a Senior Fellow at the World Resources Institute, and Director of Economics for the Climate Champions Team.
