Cost of Inaction Ticker April 22, 2022

The cost of climate inaction is expensive. A new ticker displays the live 2022 costs of business-as-usual policies that fail to address climate change. From flooding and extreme storms to drought and heatwaves, billion-dollar climate events are becoming too frequent, accounting for over 80 percent of the weather and climate damage the U.S. has experienced. This has resulted in $742.1 billion in damages, with an annual average of $148.4 billion, over the past five years. To learn more about the cost of climate inaction, check out the ticker here.
