Do you think that the Government is ever going to get real with what we are all experiencing? Global warming is here, it is real. For the people who are still dealing with the aftermath of "Superstorm Sandy" It is not just an abstract, it's reality. The coastline has changed and people who thought they would be able to rebuild are going to find that impossible due to the flooding that has occurred even after the hurricane. FEMA has given only a partial reimbursement to those who lost their primary residence. These homes now have to be raised on pilings, due to new the new flood zones outlined by FEMA. Many don't have enough money to rebuild. Maybe they shouldn't rebuild, and that is another reality, the rising seas due to the melting of the polar ice caps, have changed our landscape all along the coast.
Congress is so damn worried about what the deficit will do to our grandchildren. They are oblivious to what the climate will do to them.
Again, our country will be on fire.
So we have floods, fire and drought, can famine be far behind? I know no one is really interested in this with the deficit and gun control. However, it amazes me that climate change is affecting so many, yet we choose to ignore the fact that global warming is having a real impact on us all, right now. While we hear a bunch of nonsense about how broke we are. We are willing to let our kids and grandchildren live in an environment that will continue to deteriorate, and still we do nothing. So turn up the air conditioning this summer. The energy companies love it. Frack and destroy. Someone is getting rich, believe it. But it is okay to kick the "Climate Change Can" down the road.
