There has to be a downside I'm not seeing.

Don't worry, people in Miami are known for leaving early. They'll be fine.

Not when it comes to their land. They'll just put their mansions on stilts and ride around in boats.

Well, there is that whole "mass displacement of entire populations because the capitalists wouldn't tolerate their profits being affected" thing that kinda tends to lend itself to widespread unrest, violence, and generally lots of Bad Things That Are Avoidable.

But hey, at least Goldman Sachs is keeping their share price up.

I'm having trouble caring anymore.  After watching for decades the american public willingly accept "studies" from oil companies saying there is nothing to worry about while the same time believing in a global scientific conspiracy saying otherwise, there just isn't much sympathy left in me.  We'll get exactly what we deserve.

I "predicted" that in 1991.

Most of the people who live in Miami now a days floated there on a door.

I doubt it will affect them that much.

We already have an "American Atlantis" It's called New Orleans.

Well, Miami was pretty much Rapture on land, now it will just be Rapture.

Rolling Stone warns that Miami will be under water

I'm unaware of this science journal. Have they been around for a while?

Goddammit.  They'll probably all move to the Tampa Bay area.

Somewhat sensationalist (I know, shocker, right?).

They've predicted a range of possibilities for sea level growth.  6 feet by the turn of the century is an extreme prediction that is not expected to occur.

The expected rise in sea level for the gulf coast over the next century is less than a foot

I'm hoping they see the guidoes in Ft Myers/Naples and just stop there.

the opposite of charity is justice: I'm having trouble caring anymore.  After watching for decades the american public willingly accept "studies" from oil companies saying there is nothing to worry about while the same time believing in a global scientific conspiracy saying otherwise, there just isn't much sympathy left in me.  We'll get exactly what we deserve.


Companies are bad! I don't care how much anything costs! I love the planet more! Greed! Greed! Greed! People are stupid!

Did i get that right?

In Fort Lauderdale on Thursday, the Sun Sentinel reported that Nancy Sutley, chair of the White House Council on Environmental Quality, called global warming "the global threat of our time" during a meeting with Broward and Monroe officials.

Yeah, because nuclear weapons production facilities in terrorism-sponsoring states is no match for warming like this:

By the way, those who want to help the climate should check into Al Gore's "Reality Drop" program.

https://realitydrop.org/#about

From that site:
Our challenge is to fight denial where it's happening and spread the truth about man-made climate change. Reality Drop finds climate news from around the web and connects it with the most relevant science.
You can drop reality by sharing stories on your social networks or get into the fray on comment threads beneath hot news articles. The more reality you drop, the more doubt you destroy, and the more points and prestige you earn.
A red article means it's a news story promoting climate myths and supporting deniers. Drop reality in the comment threads where you can and earn bonus points whenever your comment gets a hit--when someone clicks on a link that brings them back to the science on Reality Drop.
Green means it's news worth sharing. Spread truth on your social networks, or check out the comment threads in the article and drop reality on denial commenters.
Gray articles are neutral and need your attention. Check them out and vote on whether they're pro or anti science, then drop reality.
Click on a news card and start playing. Together, we'll stand up for reality and destroy the denial. And then we can stop arguing, and start working on solutions.


Because the debate is, you know, over. That's why Al Gore needs YOU to drop some reality on some denier by spamming some forum - because the debate is, you know, over.

Have to agree with the poster that "we will get exactly what we deserve", unfortunately "we" will be mostly dead and it will be our children and grandchildren who get it.

But yeah, you can't go around dumping wastes in tremendous quantities forever - eventually bad stuff happens. Whether this waste is CO2, fertilizer (dead zones like in the gulf, problems in Chesapeake bay and Lake Erie), or feces, it means bad things happen that will add up until you stop.

Can't wait to see the shiatstorm when the arctic ice melts completely in summer in a few years. I expect the "positive" news about new shipping routes will be all over too.

I look forward to hearing rightwing billionaires blame it all on overregulation and overtaxation, and their mouthbreathing fanboiz lifting their PBRs in the air and yelling, "damn straight!"

Graph of... uh... 187 months.  Just long enough to get the 1998 El Nino in.  In the meantime:

Yeah "just" long enough that the graph data doesn't even start in 1998.

And scientific ignorance, ladies and gentlemen, on display right here.

Only the very dumb still are arguing that climate change is a myth. Hell even the conservatives have given up fighting the gays. When are you going to try quittting fighting people who are smarter than you? You won't win an argument against people who know a lot more about something than you do. Ever.

As my first-ever concert was seeing Donovan at the Miami Beach Convention Center, I approve of this post.
