In this op-ed, Pieter Pauw and Frank Biermann react to a contribution by philosopher and author Sebastien Valkenberg, who claims that countries should invest in adaptation rather than mitigation. Pauw and Biermann explain that this outdated ‘solution’ to climate change is unfair, and that both research and the international climate regime have advanced further.
