Comments 1 to 1:

  1. The article in Newsweek about FLorida is very strongly worded.  More of this type of article in the mainstream press will catch the general public's attention.  From the article:

    "South Florida business leaders and even many local Republican politicians are no longer in climate change denial. Now, deep in the fine print of resolutions and memoranda being passed around among the various task forces in the area, one sees the mantra “Elevate. Isolate. Relocate.” Abandonment of some parts of the community to water is now accepted as unavoidable. Even the most conservative estimates assume that a percentage of the next generation of Floridians will become internally displaced Americans, climate change refugees."

    The author uses high estimates of sea level rise and gives examples of people currently dealing with floods today.  Republican politicians Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio are referred to as deniers.

    I think articles like this impress people more in the long run than scientific articles becasue they are easier to read.  Everything helps.
