Roubini_ Climate change causing economic disaster - YouTube
Nouriel Roubini, an economist and New York University professor, and Ian Bremmer, Eurasia Group president, say extreme weather caused by climate change is hampering the global economy. One big problem: Poor nations have few incentives to address the issue because solutions could slow their economic growth.
Wait, what?

1. If CO2 actually threatens to kill these people and their families, why doesn't that qualify as "incentive" for them to try to prevent CO2-induced bad weather?

2. If the "solutions" could slow *their* economic growth, why are we being told that the solutions will speed up *our* economic growth?
