    Fuck the politicians. Listen to the scientists.

    No, most of The Netherlands is below sea level. The country actually gets more land every year rather than losing it. They reclaim land from the sea. Those areas are called polders. Climate change is not the problem with Tangier Island. The problem is erosion. It's been going on for a long, long time. Before we even thought of the words climate change. The proposed fix is a jetty to break the waves before they hit the land leading to less erosion. Not everything is a climate change conspiracy.

    From what I'm reading (several different sources) Tangier Island's problem is a combination of erosion and sea levels rising and all along the Virginia coast they're dealing with the same thing.

    The impact of climate change cannot be a conspiracy. Clouds do not conspire with ground temperatures, etc.

    Okay, if you are such a believer in climate change, what are YOU doing about it? Do you bicycle everywhere? How do you heat your house? Power this computer that you are using? Actually, you don't give a damn about climate change. You just look for ways to blame conservatives for everything.

    Not this silly, beside the point, empty headed obnoxious shit again. Why is everything all or nothing with conservatives? Everything is zero sum. You can't have technology and reduce the worst affects of climate change? That's seriously stupid. You make yourself look like an idiot when you make that argument.
    Thanks from Paris, Madeline and BigLeRoy

    PRICELESS: “Like the president, I’m not concerned about sea level rise,” he said. “I’m on the water daily, and I just don’t see it.”

    Instead, Eskridge, along with many of Tangier’s residents, said he worries about the erosion caused by the Chesapeake’s water pounding on the island’s shores. He said he believes this is why his home is disappearing at an alarming rate.

    Nothing can fix stupid. lol

    Erosion caused by rising sea levels. We have the same horror going on in southern Florida. You have the rise in sea level read wrong. If it were only 4 inches in 120 years and nothing more projected we'd be celebrating.

    No, it makes you liberals hypocrites if you aren't doing everything possible to reduce your carbon footprint while complaining about climate change.

    Do you give a shit about the planet or not?
