Edna, choke on THAT.
is that video real?
Is it real? Ask the people on MIami Beach. It was taken yesterday and tonight will be worse. Up and down the east coast you will see record storm surge and flooding - when the sea starts high - and you get a catastrophic, extraordinary storm, you get this scenario. Sign of things to come - until communities can't take it anymore, insurance pulls out and banks stop financing. That's Climate Change.
Just a couple of more inches and I could windsurf down the street with a short skeg. Maybe they should start manufacturing a 3 inch skeg as it could be the start of a new era for a dying sport: URBAN windsurfing. This video is unbelievable. Where are the major news networks?
Unless we stop polluting there soon will no Miami Beach
That's what I've been saying: the future of South Florida is in pontoons and outriggers.And instead of pretending Metro Miami is a Basel, or now Nice of the Caribbean (much less a Paris or Berlin), our structures should resemble that of Polynesia or other island-based cultures.Look, before the Europeans, and especially before Henry Flagler was seduced by Julia Tuttle, Miami was an outpost of American indigenous peoples. All of our engineering and modern machinery cannot override the basic fact that most of South Florida is unfit for human habitation. Native American understood that, but we Europeans remain particularly stupid and arrogant."You can force Nature out of town with a stick, but she'll come right back in again." said Sophocles, I think.
Nature always bats last.
I say we bring in Gondolas and switch names with Venice Beach.
When Bruce Greer said in the Herald that Miami was like Florence Italy I nearly died laughing. Miami deserves every last inch of flooding.
