Coal is the central threat to the climate – keep it in the ground
The SNS Economic Policy Council 2020 has released a report that presents how Swedish policy should be designed to curb, and in the long term, stop global climate change.
The report is presented by John Hassler, Chairman of the SNS Economic Policy Council 2020, professor of Economics, Institute for International Economic Studies (IIES), Stockholm University
Since 1974, SNS annually appoints a group of academic researchers that analyses how various key aspects of the economy function over time. Based on its conclusions, the Council makes recommendations to politicians and also, occasionally, to other decision-makers. The purpose of SNS is to ensure that the public debate is based on high-quality scientific research.
You are welcome to join Finnish and Swedish academics, business leaders and government officials when they apply a bilateral approach to the climate challenges our societies face today.
