More Areas at Risk Due to Global Warming

I stumbled upon this article this morning. I was not surprised to learn that more and more areas are becoming flood zones due to climate change, but the information is disturbing nevertheless. Check out this map from MotherJones.com showing projected change in flood hazard between now and the year 2100 in the United States or find the full article by clicking here

  1. It's not surprising that this is a FEMA report. Always look to the people who have to pay for the consequences for the real scoop on climate change. The re-insurer Munich Re would colour almost all of the East Coast a deep red. A lot of Florida is sunk - no pun intended. If the premiums for FEMA started to appear on our tax returns ("$2,075 of your tax dedicated to flood insurance") maybe that would get us into action to stop global warming?
