Nature is a Loan Shark – if you don’t pay him back for all the resources you borrowed, he’ll take revenge – with plenty of interest. In this case, nature loaned us a clean, unpolluted environment, which we’ve used up fast; if we don’t pay back that loan fast, the costs of climate change for humanity will skyrocket. The graph of estimated future climate costs (red area) is modified from OO The Social Cost of Carbon from the PAGE09 Model, from Cambridge University research (via the UK Guardian). There is a significant probability that the costs could be much greater (orange area). Loan shark via machina-3014
Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here. This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is this year!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
