    That's the way to read this. Green doesn't mean good. I can list off dozens of scary, GDP-crushing climate impacts in the U.S., but many of even those impacts will be felt worst by the rest of the world. If California agriculture takes a hit, food costs more money in the U.S., but exports decline and the rest of the world starves - exactly like you said. Adaptive capacity is the key, along with the set of experienced impacts.
