But in the past two decades, climate change and industrial activity — such as sand mining and the construction of dams and deep-sea ports, which trap sediments and prevent them from reaching the coastline — have accelerated coastal erosion here.

I don't buy into the AGW theory as to why the planet is warming.
But there's one thing I think we can all agree on - we need to stop destroying the only home we have.
We need to clean up our act and stop spewing poisons into the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the land we eat. If we don't start learning how to work with mother nature rather than against her, we're going to leave behind a nightmare of a legacy that our kids and grandkids are not going to be able to fix.
We need to stop arguing about the whys and start arguing about the how-to's.
And as long as our useless leaders can keep the "why" arguments going between ourselves, it saves them from having to do anything about the how-to's.
It's time we stop allowing ourselves to be used as puppets for these useless twats and start demanding they do their damn jobs.
It depends on where in south Florida, but I suspect Miami is sinking faster than sea level is rising and part of that is due to all the insane development going on where it shouldn't be going on. More water pumped out of the ground and more weight of more buildings pushing down on a very porous and collapsible form of rock is a formula for disaster.

We have a new moon in about a week, we will likely have flooding again down here in South Florida.
This is NOT a result of errorsion, building seaports, industrialization, ect...
