What if the biggest problem facing humanity isn't climate change itself, but instead, how we talk about it? Join a panel of experts as they weigh up whether it's smarter to engage the masses through their heart or their pockets. Consensus is divided over the best way to tackle climate change.

Or should we use a 'business-based' approach, one that focuses on taxation to punish environmental damage?
