Miami residents fear ´climate gentrification´

Schiller Sanon-Jules remembers eating fried pork and plantains in Little Haiti when he was a kid in the 1980s. “It was a taste of Haiti,” says Sanon-Jules, who immigrated to the US as a child and now owns the Little Haiti Thrift and Gift Store, one of the shops on the neighborhood’s brightly-colored main street. (Snip) On Miami’s beachfront, rising seas regularly push water up through the ground during high tides. Flooding is more and more of a problem. But Little Haiti sits roughly a mile inland, and on relatively high ground. Sanon-Jules’ store, for example, is 11 feet above

Comments:
Elevation 11 feet is ´high ground´? Article admits near end that shore-front properties are booming.

I can see recreating Italy or China in various cities but what is there worth recreating about Haiti? Shanties?

IIRC, the last Ice Age ended about 20,000 years ago. Its a good thing we didn´t have automobiles, BBQ grills, lawn mowers, factories, etc. or humans would be blamed for that!

It couldn´t possibly be related to beach erosion. No, not possible. Same issue in Monterey Bay (California), beach erosion attributed to rising sea level.

Condominiums in south beach are going for 20 to 30 million . The main reason that they will need to move is because of growth. Little Haiti sits next to Miami shores which they basically destroyed and was one of the most expensive communities .Little Haiti is crime infested .

I lived in Miami for about a year. Longest decade of my life. The weather is beautiful, but most of the neighborhoods are ´no go zones.´ The traffic is horrid. I´ve been forced to drive at over 110 mph to keep from getting ran over and I´ve sat in traffic on I-95 for hours reading a book. I see no reason I would move there.

My house is at about 700´ elevation. Springs break out of the ground by the house virtually every spring, and run all summer. Is the raising and the lowering of the local water table to be blamed on climate change? If so, the climate changes twice per year.

There is little accurate information that shows any legitimate sea level changes in the last century or two.
Land levels are more likely to drop locally than the sea is to rise globally.

I call BS. Probably subsidence if it isn´t entirely their imagination, this was marshland and sand. Load it up heavily and it just flows out. Any building not having piles down to bedrock will eventually settle on that kind of land.

It is part of the natural life-cycle for barrier islands (like Miami Beach, Cape Hatteras, Chincoteague Island, et al) to migrate towards the shore over time and to gradually disappear beneath the water as they are reborn further offshore to start the cycle all over again. It´s virtually impossible to stop these glorified sandbars from sinking, and to blame it on a non-existent sea-level rise is doubly-disingenuous.

Same basic thing for oceanic atolls (e.g Polynesia and the Maldives), which temporarily rise around aging volcanic islands, and later recede back beneath the waves, as a natural part of their life cycle.

Dade County used to be a nice place to live. I was born there, went to school with Fred Flintstone. The area started heading south thanks to Jimmy Carter. It is now a third world city with a superiority complex.

I just spent a week in the Miami area and have this to say. If your not within walking distance of a beach, the area is largely a crap hole. The traffic is atrocious. 30 minutes just to get off of the off ramp during rush hour.

It wasnt that way in the 80´s.

CNN poll: DACA not worth a

Posted By: NorthernDog- 1/20/2018 8:35:32 AM     Post Reply
Washington - With hours to go before a midnight deadline for Congress to fund the government or shut it down, most Americans say avoiding a shutdown is more important than passing a bill to maintain the program allowing people brought to the US illegally as children to stay, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS. (Snip) Still, 56% overall say approving a budget agreement to avoid a shutdown is more important than continuing the DACA program, while just 34% choose DACA over a shutdown. Democrats break narrowly in favor of DACA -- 49% say it´s more important vs.

Patrisse Khan-Cullors and Asha Bandele, authors of the new book When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir, are self-described “prison abolitionists.” And they hope their book will inspire readers to consider a society where jails aren’t necessary. “I would like us to use our collective imagination to begin to imagine a world without prisons,” Bandele told Colorlines editorial director Akiba Solomon earlier this week during a conversation hosted by The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture and The Strand Bookstore. “There are places on this planet where prisons don’t exist.

Apple CEO Tim Cook opened up to ABC News after the company announced earlier today that it will be investing $350 billion in the U.S. economy over the next five years, creating more than 20,000 jobs. In a news release, the company also said it would make a $38 billion tax payment to the U.S. as required by recent changes to the tax law. Apple said this would be the largest tax payment of its kind. While Cook would not "take a position" on how the new tax plan is affecting individuals´ taxes, he said $38 billion tax payment would

"Morning Joe" co-host Joe Scarborough questioned President Trump´s weight on a White House physician report, stating if "that´s what 6-3, 239 pounds looks like, that´s a shock to me." The commentary comes one day after Rear Adm. Dr. Ronny Jackson concluded the president was in "excellent health" while also sharing that Trump tallied a perfect score on a cognitive test requested by the president. (Snip) The "Morning Joe" hosts have repeatedly called the president´s mental state into question on the program dating back to May, with Scarborough stating that Trump has "early-onset dementia."

Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer’s (N.Y.) efforts to unify Democrats and prevent a shutdown are complicated by lawmakers with presidential hopes who are pushing for a hard-line stance against any short-term spending measure that doesn’t protect certain young immigrants from deportation. Senate Democrats such as Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Kamala Harris of California have signaled they will not support a short-term spending bill that leaves the fate of these immigrants, often called Dreamers, up in the air.

MOSCOW — Even thermometers can´t keep up with the plunging temperatures in Russia´s remote Yakutia region, which hit minus 67 degrees Celsius (minus 88.6 degrees Fahrenheit) in some areas Tuesday. In Yakutia — a region of 1 million people about 3,300 miles (5,300 kilometers) east of Moscow — students routinely go to school even in minus 40 degrees. But school was canceled Tuesday throughout the region and police ordered parents to keep their children inside. In the village of Oymyakon, one of the coldest inhabited places on earth, state-owned Russian television showed the mercury falling to the bottom of a

A review of a classified document outlining what is described as extensive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse was made available to all House members Thursday and the revelations could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, several sources with knowledge of the document stated. These sources say the report is “explosive,” stating they would not be surprised if it leads to the end of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation into President Trump and his associates.

The White House says it will not negotiate with the Democrats on immigration until the end of the federal government shutdown. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says in a statement that, “We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands.” She adds, “When Democrats start paying our armed forces and first responders we will reopen negotiations on immigration reform.” The government shut down at midnight after Congress failed to pass a spending deal.

After leaving office, President Ronald Reagan created the Ronald Reagan Freedom Award to recognize individuals who have fought to spread liberty worldwide. Nancy Reagan continued the tradition after her husband’s death, and in 2008 she bestowed the honor on human rights icon Natan Sharansky, who credited Reagan’s strong defense of freedom for his own survival in Soviet gulags. Reagan recognized that as leader of the free world, his words carried enormous weight, and he used it to inspire the unprecedented spread of democracy around the world. President Donald Trump does not seem to understand that his rhetoric and actions reverberate in

1988 Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis ripped President Trump´s new tax law and offered optimism for Democrats ahead of the midterm elections. Dukakis, a former governor of the Bay State during the so-called economic "Massachusetts Miracle," said Republicans have lost their way when it comes to supporting fiscal responsibility. He questioned why they would champion a tax plan that may have costly ramifications for the national deficit.

California lawmakers are targeting the expected windfall companies in the state would see under the federal tax overhaul with a bill that would require businesses to turn over half to the state. A proposed Assembly Constitutional Amendment by Assemblymen Kevin McCarty, D -Sacramento and Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, would create a tax surcharge on California companies making more than $1 million so that half of their federal tax cut would instead go to programs that benefit low-income and middle class families.
