26. too late to stop it, we have to focus on mitigation now

We've farted around waiting for the answers while the big oil companies paid unqualified scientists to lie like rugs about the causes of climate change. Now it's too late to be proactive. From here on out, for the next 50 years, might as well face it: we're reacting to shit we cannot prevent.

Countries like The Netherlands have some excellent technology for handling high water that we'll just have to start looking into for our coastal metropolitan areas. People are going to have to be prepared to move away from the lowlands, or pay the unsubsidized cost of homeowner's insurance.

Elevation is about to become a big selling point for houses in threatened areas.
