Do you have citations for the damage you claim is being inflicted today by climate change? Remember we have a long history of hurricanes,typhoons, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tornadoes, fires, and floods. So how much of the current toll is due to anthropogenic climate change? What you may find interesting is that both the relative and absolute numbers of victims from such natural catastrophes has dramatically declined over the last few centuries. The side of the ledger you haven’t looked at is the enhanced survivability and resilience of modern civilization. Again I’m not saying anthrogenic climate change is not real or not serious. I am saying any alarmist response is unwarranted. We can drive and take planes and eat hamburgers as we move our houses back from the coast.
