US Election: Nobody is Talking about Climate Change

People are afraid that doing something about global warming
will make them poorer

You would never guess it from the US election. But for the third year running the world is on course to exceed a record temperature in 2016 having suffered the hottest July in history last month. People are right to worry their children may not have it as good as they did. Yet the changing planet plays little role in their foreboding. By any barometer, US politics has hit extreme weather in 2016, yet global warming ranks near the bottom on the list of voter concerns. Illegal immigration, on the other hand, is near the top, even though net inflows came to a halt five years ago. Is democracy on course to duck the biggest challenge of our age?

If you pause to think about it, the answer is obvious. Global warming is no longer just a documentary film by Al Gore. It is affecting our daily lives in a growing number of ways. Last month, Americas east coast suffered from an unusually long heat dome  summer temperatures so high the authorities in New York, Washington and elsewhere urged people to keep their children inside and stay well hydrated.

Climate alarm is no longer a monopoly of environmentalists. Earlier this month, Zillow, an online property site, forecast that one in eight homes in Florida would be underwater by the end of the century. You might want to think twice about buying that beachfront home in Miami. The big reinsurance companies last month called on Washington to take urgent steps to stop catastrophe, which threatens to make nonsense of their risk models.

There are two big obstacles. The first is that voters increasingly distrust experts nowadays.

Second, people are afraid that doing something about global warming will make them poorer. Terms such as carbon tax imply a higher cost of living.
