On Tuesday Vice President Joe Biden predicted that extreme weather events would continue to hit the United States despite skepticism from what he called “global warming deniers.”
Biden (pictured) suggested that in addition to rebuilding damaged coastal regions, the government needs to think about more far-reaching policies to protect coastal communities by building in a way that east-coasters will not be victimized by a similar storm again.
If we don’t heed his warning people are not going to be able to live along the east coast in next two, five, 10, 20 years.
His suggestion about the remedy was even more vague than his time schedule.
How high would a seawall need to be? How long would it take to install it all up and down the eastern coast of the United States?
He really must think Americans are idiots. Come to think of it, after the last two presidential elections maybe Americans are idiots.
