Money? This is an eye opener for USA:

Between 1966 and 2011, incomes of the bottom 90% of Americans only grew $59 on average (adjusted for inflation), according to an analysis by Pulitzer Prize-winner David Cay Johnston.

During the same four decades, incomes increased by $116,071 for the top 10%, and by $18.4 million for the top 1%.

Former climate skeptic Bjorn Lomberg, who now believes climate change is man-made, nevertheless wants any action taken to reduce emissions to be intelligent and cost effective.

So the former skeptic should support the new Hansen et al analysis: The principal implication of our present analysis relates to the Faustian bargain. Increased short-term masking of greenhouse gas warming by fossil fuel particulate and nitrogen pollution is a "doubling down" of the Faustian bargain, an increase in the stakes. The more we allow the Faustian debt to build, the more unmanageable the eventual consequences will be. Yet globally there are plans to build more than 1000 coal-fired power plants24 and plans to develop some of the dirtiest oil sources on the planet25. These plans should be vigorously resisted. We are already in a deep hole -- it is time to stop digging.

So how much do you have to make before you go away?
