FELLOW EARTHLINGS… WE NEED METAMORPHOSIS! (the unsettling numbers)
Butterflies & People
A World Bank Report on Loss and Damage… said that by 2030, 325 million people could be both very poor and living in areas very susceptible to extreme weather events. By mid-century, the report estimates the losses due to climate change to the world’s coastal cities alone could come to $1 trillion/year, every year. . .
The issue called “loss and damage” comes to this: the community of nations, particularly the industrialized world, having failed to reduce emissions sufficient to avoid climate damage, having failed to assist developing countries to put in place robust adaptation measures to reduce damage from killer weather events, the poorest of the poor are getting hit with massive storms for which they are unprepared. . .
This is like the point on the Titanic when lifeboats were only available for First Class passengers.
