Brad Plumer links to an OECD report detailing climate change risk to major cities.

Of course the solution to all this is very simple: just brazenly lie about the problem.

Via Kevin Drum, who writes:

Climate change is the public policy problem from hell. If you were inventing a problem that would be virtually impossible to solve, you’d give it all the characteristics of climate change: it’s largely invisibile, it’s slow moving, it’s expensive to fix, it requires global coordination, and its effects will be disproportionately borne by poor countries that nobody cares about.
