It No Longer Takes a Big Storm to Produce High Tide Flooding in Coastal Communities

    Forget to what degree the “warming” is man-caused. Forget that all the projections of Climate Scientists have been wrong so far, always missing on the low side.

    Let’s assume the Scary Monster is real.

    A new report indicated that 2/3 of the warming could be stopped by massive new tree growth. It seems that not only do trees consume CO2, but when trees die, the same CO2 is taken in by the soil where the tree dies, holding it for decades.

    And who is against this plan? Only one guess: the Climate Zealots. Not enough pain to be suffered by people for harming Gaia if we just have to plant millions of trees. That plan just won’t work; we need human sacrifice! We must stifle economic growth and punish the poor with more gas and energy taxes in order to pay penance for our sins!

    You can’t redistribute wealth by planting trees Craig. That’s why the plan sucks for the liberal elites.

      Exactly right. If we plant trees, AOC can’t run our lives for us, to show us by force of law how NOT be racist, sexist, killers of the environment.

        Craig, I think it is scientific fact that trees take in CO2 and give off oxygen. More trees and plants are good for the environment. No wonder our air and water is much cleaner than it was 10 years ago.

    Mitigation via evacuation should be discussed at local Town Hall meetings. Otherwise, Einstein’s definition of insanity should be applied to initiate ‘aprehending’ loonies along shore lands and relocating them after compensating them for their soggy property.

    I have lived on the Atlantic Ocean since 1983. I have seen no sea level rise at all. The beach is the same as it has always been.
    Last month scientists put out a report saying that the reason there has been NO sea level rise is that the earths crust is absorbing more water. A few months before that, they said that Greenland was getting lighter and rising as the weight of the glaciers was being lifted and that was stopping any sea level rise.
    It seems the only people that can actually see sea level rise are the people that can charge more money if it exists

    Hey David, we must be living parallel lives, and like you, I’ve seen none.

    I’m shocked by the lack of focus the insurance industry puts on Environmental change. Carriers are getting claims up to there eyes due to the increased rate of natural disasters which may very well be correlated with this change. You would think being proactive would be in there best interest.

      Increased cat claims are largely due to concentration of exposures and amounts of insurance coverage in areas hit by such. The increased rate of cat claims is impacted by the breach of more events above the cat threshold amount.

      One treatment would be to raise deductibles, in part to more fairly share the claims with the risks. The other reason to raise deductibles is to encourage the risks to mitigate / reduce their exposure to floods, wildfires, …

        Polar – what good are increased deductibles when the Standard Operating Procedure for states hit by a designated CAT are to tell carriers there’s a moratorium on using the CAT/WIND deductible amount regardless of a CAT event based on the state’s own definitions?

        I can apply a 10% wind deductible for named events, but if they’re only hit with a $500 deductible because the state says I can’t apply the percentage deductible, that 10% wind ded is meaningless

      Don’t be a tool of the corrupt media, Chip.

      The IPCC’s latest report indicated that if we do nothing at all, then the cost of mitigation and other measures to address climate change-related problems would cost $500 billion per year in the U.S. in 2100.

      What the media leaves out: the economy in 2100 will be no less than 3 times bigger than today, assuming even low annual growth rates, so let’s call the U.S. economy in 2100 in round numbers $60 trillion. ($500 billion is less than 1% of $60 trillion, so big whoop.)

      And that is not only if we do NOTHING to address climate change, it is also if the worst case scenario on warming is hit, something not at all likely.

      So keep that in mind the next time the media, including IJ, write about the Scary Monster. (Truth is not a Liberal Value.)
