Andrew Guzman offers new perspectives on how climate change will affect humanity

Published by Generation Anthropocene, May 7, 2013.

In this Generation Anthropocene interview, international law expert Andrew Guzman takes a step back from analyzing climate change in terms of degrees and meters of sea level rise, and breaks down the variety of ways that climate change will affect humanity – perspectives which are outlined in his new book, Overheated: The Human Cost of Climate Change. From environmental refugees to changing disease vectors to social conflict, Guzman illustrates how nearly all of our human systems interact with climate and therefore will feel the effects of even +2C.

Andrew Guzman is Professor of Law and Director of the Advanced Law degree Programs at Berkeley Law School, University of California, Berkeley. Professor Guzman holds a J.D. and Ph.D. (economics) from Harvard University. He has written extensively on international trade, international regulatory matters, foreign direct investment and public international law.
