Double Jeopardy: What the Climate Crisis Means for the Poor

The fifth Brookings Blum Roundtable report, "Double Jeopardy: What the Climate Crisis Means for the Poor" focuses on two of the most pressing challenges for global policymakers: reducing global poverty and stabilizing the Earth's climate. Developed following in-depth discussions with leading experts from the climate change and development arenas, including former Vice President Al Gore and Dr. Steven Chu, the new U.S. Secretary of Energy, the report details the need for new global policies that address the interrelated nature of climate change and global poverty issues.
