I have a feeling that if the government confiscates 200 billion dollars per year we will still have natural disasters....
The only thing that will change is my account ballance.



I'm going to have to say that back fired on them.
It's agreed,that mitigation of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions,and their removal down to pre-industrial ppnv,could only restore 'disaster' frequency and magnitude back to pre-industrial levels.
Climate-related losses for 2018 are reported at $300-billion.That's a lot of beer and nachos.
