policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with the
environmental policy anymore, with problems such as deforestation or the
ozone hole,” said Edenhofer, who co-chaired the U.N.’s
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change working group on Mitigation of
Climate Change from 2008 to 2015.

“We redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy,” said Edenhofer.
Yeah, this has come out before; I think it needs to be brought back up regularly.
