"Statements that climate change is the biggest (environmental) problem of humankind are unfounded: We can readily think of bigger problems. For example, the people of Greece lost a third of their income in five years' time, arguably because monetary policy was unfit for purpose. The people of Syria lost more in a shorter time.

He is also Professor of The Economics of Climayte Change atv the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
