"I underestimated the threat"

Nicholas Stern

"Emissions are growing much faster than we'd thought, the absorptive capacity of the planet is less than we'd thought, the risks of greenhouse gases are potentially bigger than more cautious estimates and the speed of climate change seems to be faster."

"People who said I was scaremongering were profoundly wrong."

Lord Stern of Brentford have realised, just like many other scientists are beginning to do, that the predictions in the IPCC reports have been too soft and that climate change will be "stronger than expected and sooner than expected."

Stern is known for the Stern Review that showed it would be much cheaper to act on climate change than doing nothing.
