Surprise? Now they tell us. And, who’s this we? How about if Warmists pay for their own Beliefs?
If We Want To Stop Climate Change, We’re Going To Have To Pay For It
It’ll be an expensive fight, and time is running out.
Did I mention that it would be expensive?
Hundreds of financial leaders gathered here last week to discuss one of the biggest challenges in the fight against climate change: How do we pay for it?
That answer, it would seem, isn’t terribly complex, at least in theory: invest less money in fossil fuels and more in green technology, before it’s too late.
Say the people who just took long, fossil fueled trips.
But the fight will be long, and it will be expensive.
Addressing climate change is expected to cost the world tens of billions of dollars annually through 2020, in the form of efforts to curb emissions and adaptations to changes that are already underway. A recent report from the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate estimates that local and national governments and large banks will need to invest up to $90 trillion by 2050 to keep the planet from warming more than 2 degrees Celsius, the level at which scientists say the worst effects of climate change take hold.
Of course, this will require soaking lots of people, especially through carbon taxes and such, and all those investments in this and that and the other Warmists want? Those mean more taxes.
