Gernot Wagner, is a lead senior economist at the Environmental Defense Fund, who says we should begin thinking about responding to climate change in the same way we think about our health or car insurance - as a way of managing potential risk. Climate change has long been a topic that inspires concern, but little action. While signs of its impact have slowly increased, it seems not to pose an imminent enough threat to initiate a global attempt to slow its progress. Gernot says if we wait for the threat to become imminent, it may be too late to respond.
