Abstract

With London leading the way, Western financial centres are providing the capital for coal extraction around the world. James Leaton argues that the short-term view stock markets take and the inability of capital markets to properly factor in long-term climate change risks means that a carbon bubble is developing. Capital markets will eventually have to readjust.
