The report asserts that global warming is partly responsible for weather events like the series of catastrophic floods that hit Queensland this past December. It's crises such as epic floods that cause roads to buckle, bridge joints to be stressed and railroad tracks to be deformed. Repairing this type of carnage costs a substantial amount of money and it's estimated that 60,000 miles of highways are at risk of damage from changes in the climate.
The report concludes by asserting that investments in organizations that focus on combating climate change (i.e. renewable energy companies) is risky, but ultimately a true necessity.
