The carbon dioxide level in the atmosphere keeps going up without the legislature voting on it, so why can't the gas tax (inadequate as it is for a countermeasure) go up automatically too?
Posted 09/30/2014 10:15:37 EDT
Maybe we should put a price on carbon by a tax and dividend system or by cap and trade, and keep some of this flooding from happening.

What a stupid thing to do. But maybe the tax would have survived if it had returned all of its proceeds to the Australian people so as to make it revenue-neutral.

This article sits strangely beside the story in last Sunday's Globe Magazine about sea level rise in Boston Harbor. All of us, including the developers and the rest of the business community, should more »

Why wasn't this the top story on page one?

I didn't say that we can stop the effects of our carbon emissions; who-cares-1940 is right to say that the carbon will stay in the atmosphere for a long time and that the emissions we have already mad more »

There's not much here about the cause of all this, the carbon emissions. If we can start to cut these - say starting with the current meeting in Warsaw - we can do a lot to minimize the future floodi more »

Why wasn't this story on page 1 of the paper (just a small reference to the article inside)? And why was it so hard to find on the website? A story about a serious threat to Earth deserves better tr more »

Is this supposed to be an optimistic article?
Posted 01/06/2013 04:20:54 EST
How can anyone write an article like this without mentioning climate change? AIR Worldwide certainly takes it into account as a bit of googling shows but it didn't make its way into the Globe.

I can't judge djm71's comment since I know nothing about MEMA and what it has done and hasn't done. It would be good to see some articles about this, including some comments from climate scientist abo more »

We may need to see some optimism like this, but I cannot understand how anyone can write about the future without mentioning climate change. We can be greatly thankful that Mitt Romney, dubious about more »

What a stupid headline! Why not feature the fact that this report is putting big numbers, like 20 and 62, on the increase in probability of some actual events? more »

Should I be surprised that there are no comments claiming that the physicists at CERN have been faking their results in order to obtain grant money, or are remarks like that only aimed at climate scie more »

Many thanks to the Globe and David Abel for this front-page article. It should help raise consciousness among all the people who agree that climate change is a problem but list it 20th out of 20 in ur more »

It's good to hear that Spaulding is taking some measures to prepare for flooding due to climate change. Does anyone know whether Logan Airport is doing the same? Let's hope people realize soon that it more »

It was encouraging to see mention of dire consequences of climate change on the front page of the Globe. But the bulk of the story was about the possible good effects on rabbits etc. While it is true more »

It's great that this story is on page 1. Together with the story on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report that was on page 2 earlier this week, climate change is starting to get the att more »

At least this story was printed in the Globe; as I posted elsewhere it should have been on the first page, inadequate as it is. It mentions climate change once, which is one more time than we usually more »

Another light-hearted treatment of the extreme weather the country and the world have been having! Our children and some of us won't think it's so funny when climate change really gets going. Your wor more »

This editorial mentioned insurance companies and Mother Nature but not human-made climate change, which will become an increasingly important player in the near future. For example, see the report thi more »

Judith Curry is one of the few climatologists (about 3%, from what I hear) who disagrees with the consensus that climate change is a serious problem. If she claims that there was weather like this in more »
