The economy is the “canary in the coal mine” of climate change. No one is prepared for the devastating consequences of the collapse of the ecosystem and the economy. Government and business are committed to actions that will exacerbate the problem and cause tremendous hardship for the average person. By projecting where current trends are taking us, we can all take immediate personal actions to protect ourselves, our families and our communities.
