WARMING ECONOMIC COLLAPSE
EILPERIN 2006

[Juliet, staff writer, “Warming Called Threat to Global Economy”, WASHINGTON
POST, http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/10/30/AR2006103000269.html / ttate]
Failing to curb the impact of climate change could damage the global economy on the scale of the Great
Depression or the world wars by spawning environmental devastation that could cost 5 to 20 percent of the world's
annual gross domestic product, according to a report issued yesterday by the British government. The report by
Nicholas Stern, who heads Britain's Government Economic Service and formerly served as the World Bank's chief
economist, calls for a new round of international collaboration to cut greenhouse gas emissions linked to global
warming. "There's still time to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, if we act now and act internationally,"
Stern said in a statement. "But the task is urgent. Delaying action, even by a decade or two, will take us into
dangerous territory. We must not let this window of opportunity close."
