    Florida town sees the future:
    A South Florida town’s pioneering plan to fund retreat from sea rise

    Anyone that doubts climate change should consider that this is reality and wake up from their doubts.

    Ever heard of inadequate drainage, aging drainage, or coastline erosion?

    Wow, just wait until the town convinces enough to sellout and then watch the condos arrive.

    For the frightened little "Greta's" of the world, notice that nobody will die if this town (and others) is ultimately under sea level. If it is worthwhile, it will be protected by civil engineering measures; if not, it will sink into the sea. Some people will be inconvenienced. None will die or commit suicide.

    And so it will be with Global Warming. Some people will be inconvenienced; there might be significant expense. Engineering solutions will be required. Nobody will die.

    Anyone who lives in Florida and whose head is not completely up his ass knows that climate change is affecting the state, especially the coastal areas. In my hometown paper alone today, there was a story about desperate ocean front homeowners trying to halt beach erosion. Anthropogenic climate change will have catastrophic effects in Florida. I find it amazing that Florida has so many deniers. But then again Florida has more than few people who revel in ignorance.

    you see, someone said it was due to agw he was doing it, rather than the truth, which, surprisingly, the nyt did do. To prevent damage from erosion.

    Semantics will save you from nothing related to objective reality.
