The problem is that a changing climate is pretty much the norm. When the climate changes, people and businesses have to adjust to that newer climate. Usually the changes are fairly subtle...and take place so slowly that adaptation is just a part of regular maintenance, growth and upgrading. Also, the fact that they do make changes says nothing about the REASON for the changes. Today's rate of climate change is not different enough to change that...about .5C to .6C per century observed. Its highly likely that most of it is entirely natural.
Now an abrupt, arbitrary, about-face on fossil fuels IS NOT slow enough to be free. It would be incredibly expensive. Again...regular adaptation is pretty much free. Mitigation is incredibly expensive and disruptive.
