Not 'solely' about reducing GHGs, sure. Since we have FAILED to act responsibly, we are going to have to bear the increased costs of our failures. But for ever dollar we spend to reduce GHGs we will probably spend four or more in building mechanisms for adapting.

You probably back other 'make work' projects don't you. Especially subsidies to failing industries like the fossil fools.

Actually, I'm on the record as opposing subsidies. I don't consider adaptation engineering 'make work'.

Humans have always had to adapt to changing climates, we are not the first and if we are as sucessful as our ancestors, we won't be the last.
