The US Are Ready For Climate Action. What about us?

In both sides of the Atlantic, regions and business sectors face a range of economic risks from global climate change. Released on June 24, 2014 the Risky Business Report titled “The Economic Risks of Climate Change in the United States”, estimated $2-3.5 billion in property losses, each year by 2030. This is due to sea level rise and increased damage from storm surge along the Eastern Seaboard and the Gulf of Mexico. In the UK, the costs of last winter’s storms and severe floods according to the Federation of Small Businesses, added up to £800 million for small firms.
