As the planet warms up and the ice caps melt, Miami Florida has been
battling rising sea levels and it is just a matter of time before South
Miami becomes uninhabitable. It is one of many cities around the globe
that face a problem with rising sea levels.

I was watching Question Period on TV today and it had Premier Pallister
pitching his argument for a reduced Carbon Tax. He says he will set one
up that meets Manitoba's environmental requirement, not what Ottawa
sets.
That is such a stupid argument because climate change affects us all.
There is not 10 different separate provincial environmental requirements
on GHGs.

As the seaside buildings get old and are torn down, they'll be replaced by
new beaches while new buildings will be built farther inland.

Got that?

Umn, no. Floridia is flat. Like a pool table.
Once the waves go over the beach bar, there's
nothin' but swamp to hold them back.

3 feet of rise takes out a lot of Miami and the tip of Florida

True. However, the rise will take place gradually over a period of years or
decades, with an occasional hurricane storm surge to remind everyone that
they'll have to move on eventually...

Sorry but this is normal (for Miami at least ) as it is 90 % reef
limestone formed during the last interglacial (MIS5e ) when the sea level
was 5m higher than today -weve always known this and decades ago advised
against the urbanisation of Miami as it was likely to only end in
tears -but of course the Homostupidienses that run the area rufused to
believe us ! DESMODUS
Not every place in the peninsula is vulnerable to a 200-foot sea level rise:

I wonder how erosion-resistant Mount Trashmore is:

True. But don't skip the state just yet:

"How high could the ocean rise? No one knows. Government officials in South
Florida, using estimates from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration and the Army Corps of Engineers, anticipate three to seven
inches within 15 years, and nine inches to two feet within 45 years.

"With a one-foot increase, the water would invade neighborhoods in southeast
Broward, including Hollywood’s Lake section, Hallandale Beach east of U.S.
1, eastern Dania Beach and Las Olas Isles in Fort Lauderdale, according to
the Southeast Florida Regional Climate Change Compact, which represents
Broward, Miami-Dade, Monroe and Palm Beach counties."

See chart: http://interactive.sun-sentinel.com/rising-seas/north.html

You wouldn't have to move too far to stay high and dry ;-)

I can't move into the house next door without selling this house. Property
values are rising here, so no problem. Property values in flood prone
neighbourhoods are dropping.

Unfortunately the estimates are more like 17" by 2030 and maybe 10-11ft by
2100.
Like I said, you have plenty of time to move to higher ground...

Middle class homeowners expect to buy a new house by selling the old one. The
old house is losing value, eventually to be worthless. This means middle class
people have to take a hit; it also means the property tax drops reducing the
money to the county which might not be able to reduce its services.

The old answer was the middle class takes the hit on behalf of everyone else who
caused the problem.

The recent fix is government buy outs so the home owner gets enough to buy a
safe house. How do you feel about government bailing out home owners?

Three conclusion can be drawn from TomP's presentation:
(1) The higher the carbon taxes in Manitoba the safer south Miami will be from flooding by raising sea levels.
(2) Adopting Trudeau's "vision" is the only path to save the civilization. Anybody who does not embrace it is "stupid".
(3) TomP feels obliged to pitch in financially to preserve the oceanfront properties of rich owners in Florida.

Yes, TomP, you are a genius. So, why don't you lead by example and pitch in few hundreds or thousands of dollars to save these oceanfront properties in Florida? Oh, I think I know the answer.
