|Florida Coastline degradation|
Now, the state of Florida is experiencing the same phenomena: water disasters (Florida Coastline degradation).
Meanwhile, at yet another climate change gathering President Biden spoke some sobering words to the gathering:
“We can no longer plead ignorance to the consequences of our actions, or continue to repeat our mistakes ...”
(Biden says climate efforts ‘more urgent than ever’ at summit). Seaports are being impacted by this growing danger:
"Over the last 100 years, average sea level — as measured by a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency tide gauge that's been in place for a century at Naval Station Norfolk — has risen 18 inches. According to NOAA projections, it is expected to rise between 1-3 feet by 2050."
(DOD, Navy Confront Climate Change Challenges in Southern Virginia). Some of the people who lost homes in the Florida episode shown in the photo at the top of this post "were totally unaware" this could happen.
It isn't something that state officials want to talk about (Whatever You Call It, Sea Level Rises in Virginia).
But the information has been available for a long time.
Dredd Blog has been pointing out, for over a decade, that the military has seen this as a major threat (Global Climate & Homeland Insecurity).
