I think they will need to build many more elevated structures to survive the extended flooding. Levees will only hold for so long.

We used to heat our homes with coal back in the old country. It's dirty stuff that gets delivered down a shoot, and you'll need to keep shoveling into the fireplace. But good luck with that.

Likely need both to mitigate the situation in the present and reduce future effects.

Not really. An augur moves it to hopper which feeds like a pellet stove.

If you have that setup. I had to shovel and hand feed it when I visited family in Roanoke VA 1980's. Very nasty stuff.

Yep, I've been saying the Millennials will be the death of the regressive, fundamentalist, anti-21st Century, Trump-owned Republican party. The bad news for the GOP is there are still a bunch of old dinosaurs who have firm grip on the party and will not allow change. But once they and their old constituents die off, there will be no one left.

The GOP is incredibly myopic in all things, from the environment to the health of their own party. I look forward to Millennials them showing the door next year.

The Oppression that is the Man Made Climate Change is all most younger people know due to their indoctrination in school. It is a pure power and money grab over a HOAX which they will realize as they grow up.

My horse and buggy has wings, and an internal combustion engine.

The GOP knows a good scam when they see one.

lmao ....that's rich

Bernie 77
Old Joe 76
Pelosi -82 in 2020...



leading the pack to be President from 2021 to 2025...

Bernie? .... If he wins the presidential election on Tuesday, November 3, 2020, he will be 79.

Biden? .... If he wins the White House in 2020, he will be 78 years old when he takes office. That would make him the oldest first-term president in American history -- eclipsing, by eight years (the record set by Donald Trump when he was elected in 2016 at age 70.
