What American Cities are the Most Vulnerable to Climate Change?

Climate Change is expensive for us all, and big changes lie ahead!970832_10153091136195497_1060532036_n

A few weeks ago while riding the bus in Chicago I struck up a conversation with my seatmate.  She worked for AIG Insurance of New York City, and related how concerned the insurance industry is with the expense of climate change.  AIG Insurance had just paid out 2 billion dollars for Super Storm Sandy, and they were nervous how they were going to manage these mega storms in the future.   Some insurance companies in Florida are pulling out of the state because it is becoming too expensive to insure some homes. Read the link below and you will see why!

This week the Huffington Post named the 14 American cities that could be underwater in this century because of rising sea levels due to our warming climate, warming of the oceans, and the melting of Arctic ice.  What fourteen U.S. cities are the most vulnerable?

Can we do something?  Yes we can!!  We can put a tax on carbon emissions, we can each drive less, use less electricity, and support renewable energy initiatives.   Contact your members of Congress and ask them to put a tax on those that our polluting our air with carbon emissions.  The sooner we act the better!
