While possibly against the law, in North Carolina, yet another report has been released dealing with, this time, the Economic Impact on the US of A Due to Global Warming ( the dreaded rise in sea level is also addressed, in a major way).

Here is the link to the web site from which the report can be downloaded:

Risky Business | The Economic Risk of Climate Change in the US | Risky Business

Since it is an economic report, lots of numbers. Dire predictions on properties under water before existing mortgages are paid off, loss of value, and of course loss of tax revenue. Also addressed is the impact of agriculture having to move farther north.

What struck me was the projection that by the end of the century, unless changes are made, Washington and Oregon will have more 95+ days per year than Texas does today. Now that resonates!

Still the Naysayers will Naysay,
