2017 was a record year for the cost of weather disasters, and this article reviews them in detail. Infrastructure has become critically overdue for repairs during the last few years. Can we afford to fix the outcomes of weather disasters in the future? When will we no longer be able to afford to cope with weather disasters or fix our infrastructure? Can that time be far away?
I hope to stick around and watch, and hope that Americans will get smarter (and more principled) soon.
