    ...awareness. Maybe this is a nutty idea but Trulia or Zillow data could be cross referenced with geographical sea level change predictions to predict incremental changes in real estate prices. As sea levels inundate zip codes it will translate into hard numbers so a rough estimating tool can attract attention, albeit initially with more emotional impact than precision. Time will improve the data and after all emotions and assumptions do tangible impact real estate prices...

    People will not be motivated to change until the cost of the status quo exceeds the perceived cost of change.

    Let all Bush tax cuts expire and , bring on the Sequestration cuts to defense.

      I'm interested in the environmental data but the economic data will finally convince people. The MunichRE loss figures are compelling. Damage from extreme weather is going way up and it's pretty clear climate change is triggering the extreme weather.

      look for my eSci diary series Thursday evening.
