Climate change is bad, but it comes with benefits too


Jim Brown of CBC's The 180 interviews Dr. Bjorn Lomborg.

"There are generally two schools of thought when it comes to climate change: it is bad, or it doesn't exist. But Bjorn Lomborg wants that to change. He says it's important to recognize that there are some benefits to climate change, and to come up with more innovative ways to tackle the negatives. 

He points out that the UN Climate Panel found that climate change is not a negative right now, but will be in the future: "and that means we can ease up a little bit, we can stop trying to do stuff right now, rather focusing on how do we make sure that future generations are much better able to tackle global warming."
