Economic Risks of Climate Change in the United States
“Damages from storms, flooding, and heat waves are already costing local economies billions of dollars—we saw firsthand in New York City with Hurricane Sandy. With the oceans rising and the climate changing, the Risky Business report details the costs of inaction in ways that are easy to understand in dollars and cents—and impossible to ignore.”
~ Risky Business Project Co-Chair Michael R. Bloomberg, Risky Business: The Economic Risks of Climate Change in the United States, released June 24, 2014.
