Podcast: Climate change and international security by H.E. Anthony Cary, British High Commissioner to Canada

In our latest podcast, H.E. Anthony Cary, British High Commissioner to Canada talks to Canada-Europe Transatlantic Dialogue’s Helen Morris about why climate change is a hard international security issue. Cary argues that we need to move away from short term political considerations, take a long term view and act together to tackle climate change. Cary discusses the human and financial costs of not taking action to mitigate climate change. The interview discusses the opportunities being seized by the business community in Europe in managing a transition to a low carbon economy and asks whether their experiences could inform the debate in Canada. The interview was conducted at the Canadian International Council event on Challenges Facing the Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen. The Canadian International Council and the Climate Change Programme at the British High Commission in Ottawa are both partner organizations of the Canada-Europe Transatlantic Dialogue.
