I'd laugh if I didn't know they weren't going to make us pay for the damage their idiocy has caused.

They probably still don't believe that shiat is real.

There will be a Trump tweet assigning all blame on the fact they elected a Democratic governor (Roy Cooper) in 2016. All credit for effective governance in response to the storm is to Trump's credit.

Can we refuse to pay on the grounds that climate is a liberal myth, and therefore there could be no emergency or damage?

#GlobalWarming has raised sea level by a foot (~30 cm) in North Carolina, making the coast more vulnerable to storm surges. That is after subtracting land sinking due to post-glacial adjustment.

It turns out we'll have to bail them out because rising flood waters are uninterested in whether or not you believe they should be there.

I understand there is a prayer shield in place.

Is that not enough?

Reduced regulations on the pork industry will result in a whole state drowning in pig poop.  The state that overwhelmingly voted for the "party of smaller government" will have their FEMA checks decimated because the tRump admin robbed it to pay for the upkeep of brown people.  Infrastructure will not be replaced in a timely manner because constituents don't want to pay for taxes.  Welcome to the hell you created.

But my wife and I were going to be filming our episode in two months! I'm a stay-at-home Farker and my wife is a volunteer listener at the local nursing home, and with our $975,000 budget we were hoping to find a move-in ready five-bedroom house with a pool and access to a private beach.

When confronted with these kinds of family members and friends idiots I've stopped asking "Do you believe in climate change?" and replaced it with "Do you understand the science behind climate change?"  Puts them off their talking points.

I can prove that the pizzeria exists, but you can't prove your BS "global warming" exists. Checkmate! And help me board up these windows, will ya?

Pat McCrory was governor in 2012. He's a Republican.

The North Carolina General Assembly 2011-2012 session was the state legislature that first convened in January 2011 and concluded in December 2012. Members of the North Carolina Senate and the North Carolina House of Representatives were elected in November 2010. This was the first North Carolina General Assembly with a Republican majority in both chambers since 1870.[1]

Nope. The first climate model recently turned 51 years old and its predictions turned out nearly perfectly.
