The upside of climate change?

While consensus has developed around the threats to human civilizations and our natural world by the warming climate, it is also important to realize that adapting to these changes will result in both winners and losers.

Similarly, while some communities and cities are likely to be inundated by the rise in sea levels, in some places, such as Greenland, the melting glaciers will likely result at least in some economic benefit to the country.
