"$6 trillion in damage since 1990"

Of course, the informed, intelligent and thinking people know that there is an "incommensurability problem" regards attributing a dollar figure (or any other currency figure) to all large scale ecological calamities. We also know that, for this and plenty of other reasons, no amount of money can fix this mess. Which is not to say that the rich world ought not to help the poor world to find a way out of this mess using money. It's just that we ought not to pretend we can measure it in dollars or yen, pounds or pesos.
