Climate change is not new, nor likely to be preventable - help people adjust and survive[edit]

Climate change is less likely to lead to a sudden death than terrorists are.

It's simple economics[edit]

It has been estimate that climate change will generate 3 billion dolllars in damage per year, while the taxes from the earlier systems will cost upwards of -30- Billion dollars.
