How Do We Measure Climate Risk?
How do we measure and quantify the physical and economic risks of a warming planet? This question has very real consequences for the way companies are run, the way cities are planned, and the way markets are valued. In this episode, Shayle Kann speaks with Trevor Houser, a partner with Rhodium Group, about the new methods for assessing the impact of a warming planet. Rhodium Group and BlackRock recently published a report on the underpriced risks of climate change throughout the economy. The discussion overviews the themes of the analysis. Houser, who co-directs the Lab, also talks about the need for interdisciplinary research on climate damages and how the team was formed.
