Miami Dade County Commission Chair Rebeca Sosa is proposing a Sea Level Rise Task Force:
We all know these Task Force reports never go anywhere except when the County Commission needs cover for something stupid they are doing. However, this could be a good thing depending who is on this task force and whether Sosa is serious about positive change and puts her full weight behind a fair report. My question would be, why isn't there someone who served on the Climate Change Task Force on it? Maybe a 6th member is needed. It seems weighted to assure a certain outcome that will keep the ostrich head in the sand.
Anyway, in light of the devastating Rolling Stone's article "Goodbye Miami", I applaud Rebeca Sosa's efforts. But I do question her 5 member criteria. The County Commissioners are going to nominate the experts...well that is a disappointment right there. Some of them wouldn't know an expert if it slapped them in the face. Why not let Harvey Ruvin put together the Task Force if we want it real. At the very least, Ruvin should be on it.
Thank you Rebeca, MAYBE.
