Delaying action on climate change will cost our kids a fortune

NASA scientist Jim Hansen has just dropped another bombshell.
By continuing to delay significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, we risk handing young people alive today a bill of up to $535 trillion. This would be the cost of the "negative emissions" technologies required to remove CO2 from the air in order to avoid dangerous climate change.

 By comparison,
If global emissions are reduced by 6 percent each year, then bringing CO2 concentrations back to 350ppm would cost $8 trillion to $18.5 trillion.
When did sacrificing for our children become unfashionable?
