COVID-19 and Climate: Economic Impacts - Livestream

The COVID-19 recession is unfolding at historic speed and depth. New jobless claims reached 10 million in just two weeks, a record pace. Wall Street’s fear gauge closed at an all-time high in mid-March. Environmentally, though, the shutdown has come with some temporary benefitsâ€"decreased travel, cleaner water and a plunging demand for oil. But crashing the economy isn’t exactly a climate solution.

Speakers: Amy Maffe, Council on Foreign Relations; Kathleen Day, Johns Hopkins University; Greg Dalton, Commonwealth Club, Moderator
