    Yes, this is the Pinnacle of Corporate/profit Driven America.
    They work with every big co, including Oil cos and manufacturers.
    This is the assessment of "The Smartest Guys in the Room."
    Not liberal academics, but greedy money guys who have to be right, Not political.

    Goldman Sachs released a 34-page analysis of the impact of climate change. And the results are terrifying.

    Goldman Sachs released a 34-page analysis of the impact of climate change. And the results are terrifying. | Markets Insider
    • A Goldman Sachs report on the impact of climate change on cities across the world makes for grim reading.
    • Rising temperatures would lead to changing disease patterns, more intense and longer-lasting heatwaves, more destructive weather events, and pressure on the availability and quality of water for drinking and agriculture.
    • Major cities were also highlighted at risk of flooding with parts of New York, Tokyo, and Lagos all at risk of being partially submerged.
    ...The bank's Global Markets Institute, led by Amanda Hindlian, warned of "significant" potential risks to the world's largest cities, which are especially vulnerable to more frequent storms, higher temperatures, rising sea levels, and storm surges.

    Cities generate about 80% of global GDP and are home to more than half of the world's population, a share that Goldman says, citing the United Nations, is projected to reach two-thirds by 2050. About 40% of the global population lives within 100 kilometers of a coast, it says, and 1 in 10 live in areas less than 10 meters above sea level.

    Goldman highlighted 3 cities which would be subject to those storm surges and in the future could face harmful flooding - New York, Tokyo, and Lagos. Miami, Alexandria, Dhaka, and Shanghai face major flood risks due to being less than 11 meters above sea level.

    Natural ecosystems would be damaged, and risks to human health would rise, as well as pressures on food and drinking water.

    For 30 years all I heard was the coming ice age. All my life, the super rich have been buying up all the swank ocean-front property for themselves. Cities and states have stupidly built right to the water's edge completely ignoring the fact that the ocean has gone up and down for 4 billion years. Now in the last 10 years they have suddenly decided that this was all a mistake and I'm supposed to be concerned?! BRING IT ON. Let the shit melt. If it happens, the first to go will be all the assholes who created the problem in the first place.

    Once a few billion asshole humans have been eliminated and nature has brought the human species back under check, all will be well again for the rest of the biomass on the planet.

    Maybe, but the CAUSE is still being debated.
