Trump signs order undoing Obama climate change policies - BBC News
Among the initiatives now rescinded is the Clean Power Plan, which required states to slash carbon emissions, to meet US commitments under the Paris accord. [...] The Trump administration says that scrapping the plan will put people to work and reduce America's reliance on imported fuel. [ people have to be put to work and taxed, because they have to rebuild parts of their country again and again after one extreme weather event after another. duh! ]

A Coastal Paradise Confronts Its Watery Future : NPR
The neighborhood we're in was transformed from swamp to subdivision in the 1950s and 1960s, Fergus says, by dredging canals and then using the spoil to build up adjacent land. As a result, he says, many homes sit just a few feet above the water, along a coastline that is entirely man-made. And most other parts of the city also have been shaped by people. Almost every buildable lot is occupied. The beaches are covered with sand brought in from other areas. Even the city's nature park is on a man-made island. This sort of artificial landscape is common in this part of Florida, says Randy Parkinson, a coastal geologist who has spent years studying the challenges facing coastal cities. "When I first came up to this area from Miami, I tried to find a wetland that had not been altered by human activity," he says. "But there are no natural habitats left." That's a big problem in an era when the sea is rising and storms may be getting more powerful, Parkinson says: "I see a train wreck."

Storm Surge - 2013/14 UK has been a victim too. >> Climate change deniers are sponsored and supported by the lobby of the Fossil fuel industry. Fossil fuel industry is the strongest most powerful political lobby industry in history, followed by Wall Street and big Pharma. *Christian Parenti http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_Parenti // Koch Industries - Koch Brothers have huge interest in keeping the petrochemical industries they own, running.
