I want to hear some discussions of the politics and economics of the phenomenon. I am not asking about the science. For example, real estate prices are not falling on the coastline. I.e. President Obama’s recent Cape Cod purchase. I mean not to troll with this example but both sides of the isles their money does not follow the predictions as far as we are 12 years out from catastrophe.

As far as the Obama example, his house seems to be several feet above sea level. I also don't think we are 12 years from catastrophe.

For me, it's simple. The earth is getting warmer and we should make sure we are doing all we can to not be affecting the weather or the environment in a negative way.

What is “all that gangstonc” can do?

And if you were President or in the Congress, what is all that you can do? Where do you start?

Seems to me that public opinion is swaying more towards believing in climate change. I don't know how this change has affected policy makers or if there's still an equal amount of resistance now as there was ten years ago

I think we need to recognize, as a nation, and with our policies, that we can make things better for our kids. Reduce dependency on oil, toughen EPA standards, more subsidies for renewable energy, increase fines on companies that incorrectly dispose of hazardous waste. Things like that.

Yeah. It’s almost like immigration, social security, national debt, abortion. I don’t really think politicians much want to solve and resolve as much as fund raise and gain/maintain power.
