I recently spoke to Ammar Habib Khan, an economist with the Atlantic Council, about the disparities of global climate impacts and responsibility, especially highlighted in the wake of disastrous monsoon flooding in Pakistan this summer.
I’ll be including his remarks in an upcoming Yale Climate Connections video, but will share a few snips over coming days as well.

    Meanwhile, as total resources tighten in Pakistan, the population is young and growing, though the birth rate has been dropping (to ~3.4 births per women).

    Personally, of all of the habit changes and resource consumption reductions I have made over the decades, as an American I feel my greatest “contribution” (beyond not dying early) was not having children.
