The current global recession warrants strong and urgent global action. But so does the threat of climate change. A strong fiscal stimulus is needed – beyond what governments have already put in train. But stimulus packages need to be well-designed. Many, but not all, measures to mitigate climate change meet the design criteria very well, so this is an opportunity to increase the pace of efforts to halt climate change. The scope for deficit-financed government spending varies across countries. This strengthens the case for global cooperation, as does the need for confidence-building actions against climate change running up to the UNFCCC conference in Copenhagen later this year.
