Sea level continues to rise at a rate of about one-eighth of an inch per year. It is estimated that by around 2035 we will see another 1° Fahrenheit (0.55° Celsius) of global warming. For every degree of warming, we see one longer stronger hurricane and more flooding. Climate disasters are costly and someone has to pay for them. In 2017, after multiple record-breaking hurricanes and wildfires, FEMA was bankrupt – FEMA was forgiven $16B in debt and that forgiveness was covered by your tax dollars. The cost of climate change may be even more costly than you think.
