So it’s going a few rands to retool our global grid networks and get carbon emissions down. But even if you don’t believe it’ll be worth saving trivial things like ice caps and Cape Town from sinking into the sea, the economic cost of not doing anything is staggering. How staggering? Vox Europe has simplified and illustrated the European Environment Agency’s recent report into the cost of climate events in the EU alone over the last 40 years. Read it here. (And then check out the Guardian’s explanation of why solar power is “insanely cheap” and we should all just use it already.)
