Florida Is Disappearing, Inch By Inch


How South Florida Is Ignoring The State’s Leading Politicians And Taking On Climate Change

Susanne Torriente remembers waking up on Thanksgiving morning in 2012 and discovering that four blocks of Florida’s main coastal highway had washed away overnight.
Tropical Storm Sandy, before it turned into a superstorm and traveled up the East Coast, was the immediate culprit, as were the smaller storms that hit South Florida in the following weeks. But none of those storms had been major, not by Florida standards. Instead, it was high tide combined with sea level rise that had washed significant amounts of sand away from the beach and wiped out State Road A1A alongside it.

Having spent most of my 64 years in South Florida, I can honestly say, it has always been a flood zone, as most of South Florida is just a few feet above sea level.

Yep, The Rich Are Getting Richer And The Rest Of Us Shop At Dollar Tree

A polarisation of the American economy, which has been supportive of top earners but pushed many middle-income earners into more cautious buying habits, was on display as retailers catering to both to high- and low-income spenders outperformed those focused on the middle.
