The author of the Stern Report, economist Nicolas Stern, in this short video says that the economic crises and the climate crises can be solved at the same time. 

In his opinion, massive investment in climate change mitigation technologies would provide short and medium term fiscal stimulus to support jobs and the economy. 

Stern says that moving the world economy to a low carbon economy would have a similar economic effect as previous great technological shifts such as the development of the railways, the introduction of electricity, the motor car and information technology.
