What communities are doing, before they "give up and leave." I had a chuckle at the official who said he was a Republican but had to admit the rising water situation was real. So, one Republican with a glimmer of intellectual integrity. I just saw a pig fly over.

At least we can move away from high water. Not sure that works in hell.

I have a close friend who is a climate change denier. Strangely enough, we both work in the fuel cell vehicle market.

We made a bet that a restaurant on the outer banks in N. Carolina would still be there some 10 years from now (when I retire). I'm sure it will be, but the point should be obvious soon enough to everyone. Climate change can't be ignored for much longer.

Dave, if you can see the September 2016 Scientific American article that I referenced elsewhere, they do have maps showing where they predict the rises will be. "Predict" but worth noting.
