It has been pointed out to at risk communities like Cape Coral & Ft Myers Beach that the catastrophes of AGW (manmade global warming) won’t hold off until 2050 and happen all at once. The conditions for disaster will gradually build at an almost imperceptible rate.

Tropical diseases, extinction of beneficial species, energy grid cost/collapse, hordes of environmental and economic refugees coming over the borders and arriving on our shores and seeming (outsized) natural disasters like the hurricanes seasons of 2005 and 2017. Harvey, Irma and Maria left a mark. The new normal is that it will be just getting worse and worse all the way toward 2050 and beyond, like longer hurricane seasons and brush fires year around here like in California.

It is a distraction from reality.

This pertains to Cape Coral.

Why the great Global Warming lies

“A poll, conducted by Gallup, shows that many Americans “perceive climate change as a distant problem,” says Anthony Leiserowitz, director of the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication. A lot of people think that we won’t bear the brunt of climate change until 2050 or 2100, and that other parts of the world will be affected, not the US, not their state, their city, or their community. “As a result, it becomes psychologically distant. It’s just one of thousands other issues that are out there.” If I have to worry about paying my hospital bills, I’m less concerned about melting sea ice in the Arctic.”

This is the old fossil fuel profiteers like the Koch Brothers who will be dead as it gets intense and the billionaires like Trump who are just too mean and dumb.

Two ways, taxes and impact. Re: taxes — Among discussion items cited in the guest opinion is ... "For example, the BoCC could declare the old Seafarer's property as surplus and place it on the open market for bid. This would surely result in another project to be built in that bustling and congested area." Re: impact — For many Cape residents, the Beach is the beach.
