We must create new money to save the climate: interview

From Qatar: COP18 UN Climate Change Conference 2012

Jakob Von Uexkull, Founder of the World Future Council and Right Livelihood Award, talks about the need to create new money to save the climate. It is absurd that we are about the destabilise the climate because we claim there is no money when there are actually means of creating new money. He describes an ‘economic witch doctor’ that is able to find huge sums of money to stablise the banks and says all that is needed is for the climate lobby to be as big as the bank lobby and to demand new money to be created. This would have a win-win affect helping to deal with the economy, create new jobs and drive a low-carbon transition.
