Is the World Bank turning up the heat?

December 6, 2012 ·

Daphne Wysham sat down with Al Jazeera's Inside Story to discuss a recent World Bank report on climate change and their own role in contributing to greenhouse gas emissions.

Daphne Wysham on Al Jazeera discussing the World Bank and climate change:

"It was 1992 when the World Bank was asked at the Rio Earth Summit to begin to marshall the funds to address the climate crisis, to help the developing world move away from fossil fuels, and they have done the exact opposite."

Daphne Wysham is a fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies and works with the Sustainable Energy and Economy Network. See the interview on Al Jazeera's website here.
