The Earth is undergoing numerous, diverse modifications, many due to climate change and which are beginning to intensively threaten human existence. From droughts to warmer temperature and sea level rise, we can expect economies to be impacted in many ways; as the demand increases the need for our basic necessities of life (food, clothing, shelter), supply decreases due to catastrophic events which lead to shortages of needed commodities. The demand for food, security and shelter have a direct relationship with structural/topological changes that we are seeing as a result of global warming. We must be prepared to alter our many habits of everyday living. Ultimately, price will always increase when supply becomes limited/reduced. Dire states such as starvation, losing our homes or having little to no clean water can be avoided if humanity actively and collectively work together to prepare for the worst, but also to work together to lessen the greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere.
