John Hewson: Climate change the next sub-prime meltdown

John Hewson, former leader of the Coalition, sees climate change as a risk equivalent to the sub-prime loans meltdown for which super funds are dangerously exposed.

Over the Carbon Expo I managed to catch-up with John Hewson, the former leader of the Coalition in the lead-up to the “unlosable” 1993 Federal Election. I was hoping we might talk about the carbon tax scare campaign given he knows a thing or two about political scare campaigns, but he was so passionate about the risks presented by climate change for the finance sector that we ran out of time.
