The author offers his views on climate change. It is predicted that the Arctic Ocean could be ice-free in summer by 2050 and deaths linked to global warming will likely to double in 25 years. The Carbon Disclosure Project is an institutional investor collaboration on the business implications of climate change. It encourages publicly listed companies to disclose information on the greenhouse gas emissions.
