Re: When will we get a "tradeable bottom"

Denier Myths exploded - The $$$

One of the recurring but never supportable memes in the denial argument is that action on climate change would cost too much. They're almost uniformly convinced of this...

Re: Sronger hurricanes, more or less frequent

As far as my children go, I see really subtle things causing small changes that can create an economic environment that is not competive with other areas. This can lead to a lower lifetime accumulation of wealth. Besides that, the place [more]
