Let us all follow the Yellow brick road for a bit ok, because [insert large twister tornado here] I don't think we are in Kansas
Ok so there is the articles author and they mention at least half a dozen different munchkins each with their own 2cents worth added ...
Let me disect that carefully and cherry pick from the source article...
1stly OL feels a KEY point to unlocking this is ...
The law was drafted in response to an estimate by the state's Coastal Resources Commission (CRC) that the sea level will rise by 39 inches in
the next century, prompting fears of costlier home insurance and accusations of anti-development alarmism among residents and developers in the
state's coastal Outer Banks region.
Let OL follow that further ...
[Edited by OL to add 1st name] (Tom) Thompson, who denies global warming, said the prediction was based on measurements at a point on the
North Carolina coast that is unrepresentative of the rest of the coast.
And further still ...
According to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), sea level rise along the portion of the East Coast between North Carolina and Massachusetts is
accelerating at three to four times the global rate. A USGS report published in the journal Nature Climate Change in June predicted that sea level
along the coast of that region, which it called a "hotspot," would rise up to 11.4 inches higher than the global average rise by the end of the 21st
So Mr Tom Thompson may very well be credible on that issue ...
Now to asses that data my dear Dorothy ...
Hot spot may have sea level rise of 39inches in next 85+yrs and thats just 1.8inches average over 4yrs and thats probably not going to extremely flood
That hotspot is an extreme sample an not indicative of the rest of the coast which may only foresee a 28inch [39-11=28]rise over the same time period
of 85+yrs and would be equal to an average rise of 1.3inches and again over the 4yrs short term is again probably not going to cause extreme
Ding Dong The Witch is DEAD!
Personal Disclosure: I hope that lesson lessens the fear a bit for everybody.
But moving onwards to the political jungle and the money trail of doom profiteering, as it seems the insurance companies are the fiscal loansharks
financing the rather fishy political deals and they are fishing around for the local landowners hard earned CA$H!
Oh Those Wonderful Wizards of Ozstrasizing you from your money.
Please choose to ignore the brainless Strawman arguments from both sides of the polical fence, where on the right there is a flightless Dumbo and on
the left there is a hybrid Jackass!
What happened to the Eagle of the USA?
Isn't it the only one of the 3 really qualified to fly in times of national natural disasters ... why is FEMA strangely absent from rescuing all
these horribly stranded people standing barely ankle depth in 1.8inches of water any when between now and 4yrs time to come?
Water borne diseases and parasites etc would definately be a future concern if they aren't already
To turn the tables in favour of the intended target of this hype, I strongly urge everybody to take note that the ULTIMATE power IS with the local
land owners and council rate payers THEMSELVES, since they can join the local council and possibly be elected to the local board of councilors which
is traditionally where and by whome the PRICE of local land rates are SET by.
They just have to get INVOLVED!
The only issue here is any fear that establishes itself in the mindset of an ever wary and financialy dependent home owner who has to make up their
minds for themselves on whether the risk as THEY SEE IT is worth paying for the insurance or not a it is their call after all and regardless of fear
or not it is still very smart to possess insurance but it is probably wiser to choose to live where insurance ia barely needed and would therefor be
cheap to purchase.
It is like taxes ... "Oh OUCH I'ma melting!"
... Yeah welll maybe if they didn't muck about in the water they wouldn't dissolve in a puff of
"I'll get you my prettys ... Muhaha ...melting FML!
Have Courage Lion!
In the meantime ... build an ARK! Didn't God go through this with Noah once before?
Whoops wrong storyline ... Glinda just ment click those ruby red slippers together three times and say "There is no place like home ... There is no
place like home ... [end dream sequence] There is no place like home!
Sorry to be all hatchet job Tinman with no over the rainbow heart!
