The Climate Cliff February 24, 2013 : 6:56 PM

With all the talk of deficits in Washington, it should be noted that the U.S. Government Accountability Office recently released a report showing that the climate crisis puts our nation in financial peril:

“As climate change leads to more frequent and destructive natural disasters and threatens crop yields, bridges and other infrastructure, the federal government faces big financial risks that it is poorly positioned to address, auditors said Thursday.”

“These risks, along with the threat of gaps in critical weather forecasting satellites that could last years, topped a biennial list released Thursday of federal programs at high risk of waste, fraud, abuse or financial loss.”
