From wildfires to “superstorms” the effects of climate change can be seen all around us. While it’s easy to observe the direct effects left behind by extreme weather on our environment, it can be much harder to picture the long-term consequences it can pose to our economy, as well.
A recent article published by Markets Insider entitled “Climate events have cost the US economy more than $500 billion over the last 5 years, Fed official says,” explores the adverse effects that climate change can present to the U.S. economy over the next century.
“These effects will be felt across business sectors and asset classes, and on the strategies, operations and balance sheets of financial firms,” Kevin Stiroh, an executive VP at the New York State Fed responsible for bank regulation, said.
In a late 2018 report conducted by scientists from 13 federal agencies they predicted that if climate change were to continue unchecked and current emission levels were to continue to rise, the effects from extreme weather over the course of the century would slash U.S. gross domestic product or GDP by nearly a tenth.
“With continued growth in emissions at historic rates, annual losses in some economic sectors are projected to reach hundreds of billions of dollars by the end of the century–more than the current gross domestic product of many US states,” the report said.
Though bleak sounding at first, the projections by scientists and financial experts are by no means set in stone. There still remains time to stave off the harshest realities of climate change through reducing our reliance on fossil fuels and beginning to curb our current emissions output. As the energy technology that will power us into the future is already available today.
