Excerpt from New York, divest pensions from the fossil fuel companies that are accelerating global warming :
Forget the bizarre tweets and insults from the White House, or the images of the President touring San Juan: What's happened in Puerto Rico will change life there for many years after all the news has faded from your feed. Early estimates put the economic damage from Hurricane Maria at $30 billion, a third of the island's annual economic output. Eighty percent of its crops have been destroyed — "there is no agriculture on Puerto Rico, and there won't be for at least another year," said one official. It may be a year before power returns, and even that won't solve the deeper problems. As one official said, the devastation had set back the island "20 or 30 years" — that is, an entire human generation's worth of progress lost in a few hours.
