[Excuse shaky video; shot mainly for note taking; but interesting points!] Two veteran environmental economists at MIT, John Reilly (left) and Henry "Jake" Jacoby, briefly outline a couple of the most important, and least appreciated, facts about human-driven climate change. One is that the system has enormous inertia, preventing any quick fix. Another is that deep uncertainty surrounds the most consequential aspects of what's to come (pace and extent of warming, sea-level rise, for instance).
