Sojourners quote of the week

Right here:

When extreme weather hits, we hear about the property damage and insurance costs. The healthcare costs never end up on the tab.

- Kim Knowlton, a senior scientist at Natural Resources Defense Council, co-author of study estimating that deaths and health problems from floods, drought, and other U.S. disasters related to climate change cost an estimated $14 billion over the last decade

That's a huge amount.
