I think I'm beginning to like this Macron guy.

I recycle, I conserve food, I have reduced my household waste every year. I have further insulated my house, updated my HVAC system and tinted the sun-facing windows on my house. I am in the process

Some of it is just simple contrarianism, IMO. My father-in-law is a Corn & Beans farmer here in SD. He has had so many contentious interactions with the NRCS and the soil conservation officers t

Climate change has cost the government $350 billion — here’s what it will cost you

Quote

Climate change has cost U.S. taxpayers more than $350 billion over the past decade, according to a report released last year from nonpartisan federal watchdog the Government Accountability Office. By 2050, that figure will be $35 billion per year. Costs include clean up and disaster assistance from flooding and storms, which are set to increase under rising temperatures.

 

Climate impacts 'to cost world $7.9 trillion' by 2050

New US report says that climate change could cost nearly $500 billion per year by 2090

I’ve been critical of why the UN and experts are listening to a 17!year old kid. But, this is where she can do good....raising money for the cause.

Unsure if this is the best home for this, but the wildfires have had me thinking about this for several days now. The world becoming hotter and drier is certainly not helping to prevent massive wildfires, but our persistent attempts (as people) to completely prevent forest fires from happening is causing as much harm as anything else.

 

Forest fires are a natural and even healthy action in an eco system. They help replenish nutrients and clear out dead material, making way for new life and new growth. We obviously don't want to start walking around the world tossing matches on forest floors, but there has to be some sort of controlled method of managing 'good fires' to try and stave off of what we see with these mega fires.

This intrigues me. This is one of the major business lobbying groups in Washington. They are coming out as for "market-based mechanism" to climate change. They also announced they would like to see a carbon tax or cap & trade system implemented as market friendly environmental policies.

 

Will want to see if this is just posturing or they will actually follow through on it.

Problem is that market solutions like carbon tax or cap and trade might have been viable 10+ years ago but will take too long now. I think announcements like these are just stalling for time.
