Delaying action on climate change could damage the economy according to the White House Council of Economic Advisors. Every decade of delay will increase the cost by 40% because remediation will be more difficult. This means that climate deniers funded by the Koch Brothers and other Big Oil, Coal and Gas companies have already cost US taxpayers and world citizens over 140% more of the cost of mitigating the damage they have done. Meanwhile the fossil fuel industry receives, world-wide, over half a trillion dollars in yearly tax breaks, depletion allowances and direct subsidies.
