State of emergency declared for Louisiana coast by Gov. John Bel Edwards

http://www.nola.com/environment/index.ssf/2017/04/state_of_emergency_louisiana_coast.html

Gov. John Bel Edwards on Wednesday (April 19) officially declared Louisiana's coastal land loss an emergency, a move he hopes will expedite a host of restoration projects mired in federal permitting. "The Louisiana coast is in a state of crisis that demands immediate and urgent action to avert further damage to one of our most vital resources," he said.

A Democratic governor asks a Republican President for funds to help with problems due to climate change.
A Rabbi, a Priest, and a Reverend walk into a bar.


Which will elicit more laughs?

Simple little article making a simple little point....the financial system, the foundation of capitalism, will not be able to withstand the impact of rising sea levels in southeast Florida and this little story will be playing out across the country and world.

The difference between this unavoidable financial catastrophe from the housing crisis that tanked the world economy in 2007 is that there will be no recovery of the housing prices.

And this ignores completely the disastrous effects of other climate destruction of the real economy.
