Nice article motive:The smart money knows that AGW is real. And is planning for the future.
NASA worries about it’s expensive facilities:http://gizmodo.com/the-biggest-threat-to-nasas-future-is-the-ocean-1786443954
So does the US Navy:
And if you are reading this with a cup of coffee close by:
Starbucks is developing coffee plants and testing coffee-growing practices to make crops more resistant to new pests and diseases, such as leaf rust, that spread with warmer temperatures. Its early results have produced plants that are more resistant—but lower-yielding and slower-growing. This is a bets strategy that will have a favorable outcome only if temperature trends in the coffee-growing regions that are already experiencing declining yields continue, as scientists are forecasting, and are not simply a short-term anomaly.
The fact is, that botanists and other naturalists are consistently seeing changes related to a warming climate. They receive no money from climate research, so stuff the denier claims about greedy researchers. But inevitably, the climate affects what they do research, and they report it. Plants and animals on the move are not being paid to do so.
And I will point out that some large corporations in the US continue, despite Trump idiocy, to move forward on climate issues. Of course, a few of them are hypocrites, as this article notes. Note that the title implies that all the corporations are hypocrites, in line with conservative thinking. Not true, as the article shows.
