it's the end of miami as we know it

and it feel fine...ok, well, maybe not....i kinda feel crappy about it.  forget hanging chads....they will soon be floating and weeki wachee will have a second site.
by century's end, rising sea levels will turn the nation's urban fantasyland into an american atlantis. but long before the city is completely underwater, chaos will begin 
...given how much florida has to lose from climate change, the abdication of leadership by state and federal politicians is almost suicidal – when it isn't downright comical. watson recalls attending a meeting on natural-hazard-response planning in south florida, funded by the federal emergency management agency and the state: "i mentioned sea-level rise, and i was treated to a 15-minute lecture on genesis by one of the commissioners. he said, 'god destroyed the earth with water the first time, and he promised he wouldn't do it again. so all of you who are pushing fears about sea-level rise, go back and read the bible.'" - rolling stone

That sort of argument from authority (God promised not to flood the earth) always makes me want to say "He said the Earth; no mention was made of localities."
