Vicky Pryce, former joint head of the UK Government Economic Service, Andrew Simms, political economist and co-author of the Green New Deal and Myles Allen, Professor of Geosystem science at the University of Oxford, discussed European energy security and climate change for a recent Prospect Talks  event.
