For anyone who thinks there is no threat to Miami of climate change, I implore you to read the February 2015 National Geographic magazine article, Treading water, which states that “Florida’s bill is coming due, as the costs of climate change add up around the globe.”
The article is relentless in its warning about the effects of global warming and rising seas on coastal cities, including Miami Beach. The grim forecast of this well-researched article should have convinced the naysayers that action needs to be taken now. We don”t have many years left before all of Miami Beach will be under water.
Anyone running for political office this November has got to put this topic at the top of their priority list. It is about time that our presidential candidates attack a very real threat to all of us, instead of attacking each other.
