From the deflecting mind of direstraits:
"We have a coast guard and navy for such. Al Gore predicted that the artic ice caps would melt by 2014, resulting in significant increases in the rise of the oceans. Despite that, progressives still flock to the coasts to live. Are they monumentally ignorant, stupid, or know that Al Bore was lying?"
The increase in sea level is enough for Miami to spend many millions fighting it. Various island nations also are threatened. It is happening and those who deny it are just deluding themselves.
And how 'bout this octopus in a parking garage in Miami Beach, the kind of thing now occurring because drainage systems cannot adequately handle the tidal ranges experienced recently as a consequence of sea level rise? The locals, both in the public works departments and in academia understand this far better than the smart alecky climate change deniers afar off.
The year is 2019, not 2014! Return to reality, not dwell on an old Doctor Who episode. Arctic ice caps intact, largest polar bear population in recorded history.
