Lot of words in there about "beliefs." When you create a narrative to label a scientific fact a matter of faith, you're free to do whatever.

Not if these internal border checkpoints that those on "the right" keep insisting are in the planning-stages are ever built.

Interesting children are easier to put right than adults because they rely on logic to understand rather than memory.

This means you can start from first principles, even climate change deniers age the temperature is increasing and sea levels are rising, so all you have to do is say what is causing that  ultimately there are only 2 answers, it's either the sun getting hotter (which it isn't). Or something between us and the sun  i.e. The atmosphere.

Most climate change deniers distract with claims about funding or intentions but when you strip that away and focus on the logic, you find they literally don't even try to explain the temperature and sea level rises we are seeing.

It's ironic that their state will be the first and most impacted once the sea levels rises few inches more.

Brantgoose. You can't spell it without rant, you silly goose!


The seas can't rise fast enough for Florida. I know that the high water is spreading in a gigantic lump of cold, freshly melted ice water and that it will hit my native land before it hits New York City and that it will hit Boston and Washington long before it hits Florida, but more power the seas. Ave Maria!

Perhaps we can hope that thermal expansion will cause Florida to become more underwater real estate while dykes are built to protect Jamaica, New York, and Foggy Bottom.

With luck, the dykes that surround the billion-dollar sand bar called Jupiter Island (where Bushes and other plutocrats have their Florida estates), will fail before the world is doomed to the worst of scenarios.

The highest point of land in Florida is what? 145 feet? 125 feet? It is a hummock that is barely visible from a couple of miles away if at all.

Good on Mother Nature! All honour to Gaia!

Let them swim like Noah's haughty neighbours, joking until the last glub.

Forget the Wall. What you need is a trench, a moat. And it should cut off Florida and other denialist hotspots so they can live with the consequences of their lies and misrepresentations.

Yes, let them join the dolphins and dugong in extinction. They will not heed counsel, logic, facts or evidence before their very eyes in the form of extreme weather hitherto unknown.

They have builded their houses on the sand. Let the first to wash away be Rush Limbaugh, the second Donald Trump, the third, Conrad Black and so forth until the Earth is cleansed of all the little liars and con-men as well as the great.

It is manifestly injust for some people to get the gold mine and others the shaft. Let the causes of global climate change be its victims. That is all any sane and decent person can ask:  you can dump your garbage over the nieghbor's fence any more. Swim in your own filth. Spare others. That is pure justice, unadulterated, and the best we can hope for in this Vale of Tears.

South FL will be first impacted, so the derpers in Central FL/I-4 corridor and the panhandle still won't believe it or care, until the forced migration of impacted brown people coming north start being noticeable to them, then they will but for the wrong reasons.

Once there was a very wicked city. Tallahassee. No, strike that.

Miami.

It was so full, so replete with a plethoria of putrid wickedness that God hated it. It was so full of Cubans, gays and other unChristian folk, that even those who claim to be Xtians hated it. In fact, way more than God hates anything he created. It was full of Rush Limbaugh and Donald Trump and the hypocrite mon.

But now that is only a problem for people who lived in Miami and are now shot at the border by the Trump Royal Navy that mains the Great Moat of Trump.

To end on a positive, non-satiric note, let us all hail the beautiful city of southern brotherhood, Atlanta.

May your sea-bound coasts be famed as long and far as the Coast of Shakepeare's Bohemia! May they be less dark and dreary than the mountain-islands  of Nova Scotia!

I have to wonder if maps like that ever account for the kind of material that the land is comprised of, and how it will fare with rising water and erosion due to water.

I live someplace that's very, very rocky. Bedrock juts out of the topsoil all over the place in a jagged, haphazard way. There's topsoil to erode away, but if this place were inundated by ocean, the basaltic rock would roughly maintain its shape, it wouldn't quickly erode away.

Never been to Florida but I understand that bedrock of any kind is pretty far from the topsoil. How far from the surface would any bedrock in those topo map regions be? Would a rising ocean simply carry-off all of the dirt leaving far less land than even those maps predict?
