US Report Projects High Toll on Economy From Global Warming (via the NYT): Ego-to-Eco shift is finally happening?

Interesting to see that now that Global Warming (or rather, its consequences) has become a serious business issue, everyone is much more open to discussing it…?

If greenhouse gas emissions continue at a rapid pace, the report said, the global sea level could increase roughly a foot by 2050, and double or triple that by century’s end. A rise of as much as six or eight feet cannot be entirely ruled out, but that is more likely in the next century. Given that land is sinking in Louisiana even faster than the sea is rising, 4.1 percent to 5.5 percent of all insurable property in that state will be below mean sea level by 2050, the report predicted. By 2100, that figure could reach 15 percent to 20 percent. In Florida, 1 percent to 5 percent of all properties could fall below sea level by 2100, the report said
