This is how you handle misinforming on climate — you just disappear the evidence

Finally, Lord Stern's PR guy got back to me
Of course, this claim was absurd (it was the *total* costs of weather, not the possible, incremental cost of climate)

and they've removed the video
Here is the incorrect claim of $350bn, which was the actual cost over past ten years, not the incremental cost above trendline
Here is the new claim — which is still wrong: making noises about a record number, but without correcting it for growth in wealth
Of course, as the world grows wealthier, the same hurricane will cause more damage — harming two expensive houses rather than an old shack
Everyone knows you should correct for GDP, and then the trend is downwards (but of course not scary)
Oh, and this is how Lord Stern's PR guy handled it
Sairah had to keep calling him, but he only got back when the video was disappeared
1) He thinks I lie, so why should it matter if Lord Stern is misinforming?
2) The link "does not appear to work"
