Climate Policy News

To help individuals interested in climate change and related policy choices, Wiser has created a climate policy news digest. This daily email will help you stay up-to-date with decisions taken by legislators, and keep you informed of the science, analysis and debate that they use to take those decisions. Changes in climate policy happen incrementally as governments around the world nudge their economies, industries and populations towards practices designed to reduce the impact that people have on the environment. Bodies like the United Nations are involved in coordinating a global response to climate policy, and all countries in the UN, including the US and China, have agreed to reduce emissions. The debate often gets heated as environmental groups urge government and industry leaders to do more. Those debates will continue as everyone seeks to reconcile the often competing objectives of growing populations and economies, with green and environmentally friendly laws. Sign up for the Wiser climate policy news email to ensure you are always up-to-date with developments.
