Miami Beach challenges water study

Based on the Miami Herald’s authoritatively sourced and balanced reporting on Miami Beach’s storm water pumping, it seems the city’s elected officials have come down with a new challenge from rising seas and king tides — truthiness.

City taxpayers pay for a government propaganda effort telling us all is well on meeting the challenges of global warming, rising seas and the more frequent king tides. Funny thing, what is so king-like about polluted flooding? Why aren’t they called flood tides? Or better yet, sewer tides?
