Why is there always money for war but not to address climate change?

Funny how when it comes to combatting climate change the debate is immediately dominated by cost. When it comes to war, cost hardly gets a mention, the pockets are endlessly deep.
Similarly, compare the rhetoric of the approaching apocalypse applied to the terror threat, with the restrained tones of doubt that still permeate the climate change debate.
The reality ofcourse is that the real apocalyptic threat comes from climate change.. and as the floods in Cumbria so aptly demonstrate need urgent attention now.
