Marco Rubio Delivers Word Salad About Climate Change 14.10.2018 Crooks Liars
Marco Rubio gave a word salad interview on CNN on Sunday morning regarding climate change. On one hand, he acknowledges that it is real, but he doesn't think studies can show how much mankind contributes (not true) and he doesn't think that making drastic changes is a good idea because it would hurt our economy too much. So strong economy is better than, you know, still having a viable planet for our grandchildren and great grandchildren to live on in 100 years? TAPPER: Speaking of experts, we can't specifically say that Hurricane Michael was so strong and devastating because of climate change, but there is scientific consensus that warmer waters are making storms such as Michael more devastating. U.N. outlined a dire global forecast, that Florida could lose more than 1 million homes by the end of the century due to rising sea levels because of climate change, which they say is man made. What do you say to constituents who ask why are you not one of the leaders in congress on this issue? RUBIO: I would ...

Hurricane Sandy and the Inequalities of Resilience in New York 5.10.2018 American Prospect
As the Carolinas continue to grapple with the physical damage and psychological trauma from Hurricane Florence, the region faces difficult choices. Communities must decide which lands and neighborhoods to reclaim and rebuild and which ones are best left to absorb the ravages of intensifying storms. Those decisions will play out very differently depending on the race and the income of the individuals and families hit hardest by the historic flooding. In 2012, Hurricane Sandy slammed a very different region of the country: the Rockaways section of New York. But the aftermath of that historic storm provides some sobering clues about post-hurricane resilience efforts—like the ones that didn’t really help the Rockaways’ low-income residents and people of color. Most visitors to Manhattan or Brooklyn know little about the Rockaways. The finger-like Rockaway Peninsula runs approximately nine miles off the southeast end of Queens. Less than a mile across at its widest, the peninsula is flanked on one side by ...
