Martin Wolf, Climate Change and the Future of Global Governance

Published on18 OCT 2018

Award-winning Financial Times commentator Martin Wolf CBE discusses how growing up during the Cold War shaped his world view, his rigorous approach to covering global economics and his projections for international cooperation on climate change.

On his writing style: “I think I have learned to be reasonably clear internally about what it is I’m trying to say. And once you’re reasonably clear about what it is you’re trying to say and you know what an argument looks like, this sort of thing just comes naturally.”

On the need for cooperation on climate change: “Global cooperation, global governance is more necessary now than ever before, because we've got a world in which human beings shape everything. We have all sorts of dangers and risks which by their nature just zip across borders.”
