The Ravaging Tide
Strange Weather, Future Katrinas, and the Coming Death of America's Coastal Cities
The issue this time is global warming. We are literally altering the sky above us. And be assured: This is not some "junk theory" peddled by Greenpeace extremists. No less an authority than the Bush Administration itself has officially confirmed, on multiple occasions, that global warming is real and is driven by our use of fossil fuels -- oil, coal, and natural gas. Worldwide, thanks to climate change, sea level is expected to rise up to three feet within the coming decades and extreme weather events will significantly increase, according to the Bush Administration.
These two factors -- more intense storms and rising ocean levels -- mean we are rapidly turning every coastal city in America into another New Orleans.
