US economic impact from climate change largest in Florida


A recent study published in Nature highlighted a sobering fact: The least amount of impact from climate change our planet can possibly hope for at this point is our oceans only warming 2 degrees, an increase that would raise overall sea levels by roughly 20 feet.

Some conservative models even predict a 4-degree increase, which would transform Florida’s peninsula into a rounded-off little stub.

In other words, Florida is extremely screwed.
