Yet MORE Evidence that Fossil Fuels Are Not "Cheap"

1 min. read

Do we really need to hear more drivel from the fossil lobby on the cost of pro-clean energy policy? We should start factoring this into the cost of fossil fuels and then see how "cheap" they really are.

The world needs to invest tens of billions of dollars a year in beefing up shoreline defenses against rising oceans or it will face mind-boggling costs in the decades to come, according to new research published this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

If nations don't build up dikes, levees and sea walls, harden existing infrastructure, and preserve natural sponges like wetlands and barrier islands—and if they also do nothing to cut the emissions of greenhouse gases that cause global warming and are driving sea levels higher—the damages could be almost beyond comprehension, the researchers warned.
