Ivory tower studies.....
Investor's Business Daily, 12/1/2017
The University of Alabama-Huntsville study, conducted by climate
scientistsskeptics John Christy and Richard McNider, shows that not only is the temperature rising far more slowly than predicted, but that the Earth's atmosphere appears to be less sensitive to changing CO2 levels than previously assumed.
...vs. day-to-day reality.
In a new report, Moody's Investor Services Inc. explains how it assesses the credit risks to a city or state that's being impacted by climate change — whether that impact be a short-term "climate shock" like a wildfire, hurricane or drought, or a longer-term "incremental climate trend" like rising sea levels or increased temperatures. Also taken into consideration: "[communities] preparedness for such shocks and their activities in respect of adapting to climate trends," the report says. "If you have a place that simply throws up its hands in the face of changes to climate trends, then we have to sort of evaluate it on an ongoing basis to see how that abdication of response actually translates to changes in its credit profile," says Michael Wertz, a Moody's vice president.
