    Hi 214,

    This is meaning 2 of the verb tax in the WR dictionary: to make heavy demands on.

    It means that if you say that something is colossal it is so large that it is hard to believe something can be that large.

    It's hard to believe the way some people and governments have reacted to climate change.

    so the first sentence means: The geneal public's response to climate change is unbelievable, right?
