    Actually, it is more economical to do something right now in a number of ways such as:

    *   Money has never been cheaper to borrow.

    *   Americans need the jobs that a green revolution could bring.

    *   It is always much cheaper to prevent tragedy than it is to react to it.

    The cost already outstrips the gains because not only are we not adaquately taxing those companies profiting most from the causes of global warming, we are subsidizing them.  Paing for the clean-up of Sandy and still Katrina not to mention dredging Great Lake harbors all gets very expensive.

    The problem is the owners of our politicians make a lot of money the way it currently is and they are not willing to give up their stranglhold on the power or the cash.
