Miami Named Most Vulnerable US City To Global Warming
Rising sea levels make Miami the US city most threatened by global warming. Miami is built on a foundation of limestone which is very porous. Sea water has already begun to seep into Miami's streets even on sunny days. Politicians in Florida have been put into a difficult situation because the GOP base has been sold on the idea that human behavior has no impact on the weather. Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush are among the top candidates for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016. They have both remained silent about the threat from global warming. They could not be honest with their base and win a GOP primary. The GOP has become the "party of the stupid". Perhaps the better description of the GOP base is that it is the party of the misinformed. The GOP propaganda machine, led by Fox News, and pseudo scientists on talk radio, has systematically misinformed its base about global warming.
