The Harvard economics doctoral student who coined the term “midpoint formula” has called for more financial aid and an increase in military aid to help meet rising global temperatures.
The economist’s statement is in response to a question on the economic impact of climate change posed by CNN’s Christiane Amanpour at a forum on Wednesday.
The United States is the world’s largest greenhouse gas emitter and has been at the forefront of efforts to curb its emissions.
“It is absolutely true that the U.s. has had a very successful economic relationship with China and India,” the professor said in a phone interview.
“But it is not because of those two countries.
It is because of the fact that the global economy has been growing for more than two decades.”
The climate change issue was discussed at a panel organized by the Brookings Institution.
Harvard economics Professor David Cutler also weighed in on the topic during the panel.
“Climate change is a major challenge to the U, and the United States, which has been a major player in the global effort to reduce the temperature,” Cutler said.
“I think there is a lot of opportunity for us to try to do things differently and to try a different course of action.”
The Brookings Institution, which includes the University of Chicago, the Brookings Institute and Brookings Institution Graduate School, has been working on a report that will be released later this year that looks at the potential impact of global warming on the U.’s economic growth, health, and security.
