Noted & so very true. Imagine climate change disrupting our country's food production. If growing seasons shift or farm land becomes flooded because of climate change, it diminishes our ability to feed our country. It will result in price increases for the food that is available, and an increase in those facing hunger and poverty, and a drain on our quality of life. And this is just one aspect of how climate change affecting economics... and it translates into real hardship for real people.

Absolutely!!! That's what most people are being misled about, too---just because climate change is causing some farmers "better crop yeilds" or whatever bollocks is the story today, other people are still suffering, and especially with the incidence of harsh weather conditions increasing, and the more tepid seasons (spring/fall) shrinking---eventually we will have 2 seasons, summer and winter...what's going to happen to crop yeilds THEN?! In addition, if the cost of anything increases anymore it is no longer "something to adapt to" but rather it is becoming a cripplling addition to the pressures of the current economic climate (no pun intended...potentially).
