Paul Gilding on the Great Disruption


Paul GildingPaul Gilding is calling for a complete reset on the climate debate, saying we will not get a global agreement on climate change and it's a waste of time to think we ever will.

And he's got credentials: he was the global CEO of Greenpeace, taught at Cambridge University and works with business and industry.

He is optimistic that the world will do what needs to be done eventually, as international business is beginning to take the issue of climate change much more seriously.

But Paul reckons it will be done at the last minute and says business needs to be prepared for that time of crisis—what he calls the Great Disruption.
