Message boards : Cafe CPDN : 50:1 Project
Just watch this Youtube flick, it's 9 minutes well spent. It'll explain to you that it's 50 times more expensive to try to stop climate change, than it is to adapt to it.

Their simplistic formula implies they know exactly what climate change will cost. What if impacts on food prodcution are much worse (e.g. tropical pests and fungi that establish themselves midlatitude, collapses in marine ecosystems)? I'm guessing the 50-to-1 project doesn't price in the mortality required to adapt to a world with 10% fewer calories.

I'm not saying that carbon taxes are the only or the best way of reducing our GHG output, but this video is astounding in many of its premises and the collection of sceptics the 50:1 project pulls together. They even manage to quote the Stern Report in such a way as to argue the opposite of what Stern intended.
