Figures were produced showing that action to mitigate climate change would cost the US between $800bn and $3.6tn by 2100. It would be another decade before other factions of capital began to mobilise in favour of limiting GHG emissions (we will encounter these in due course).
For comparison, the US bank bailouts cost $11.6tn over 19 months, suggesting the banking system is too big to fail but the climate system is not.
