Miami residents fear ´climate gentrification´
as investors seek higher ground

MSN News, by Carolyn Beeler

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

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.

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.

There Is a Revolution on the

DETROIT — For Rachel Conner, the 2018 election season has been a moment of revelation. A 27-year-old social worker, Ms. Conner voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 primaries, spurning the more liberal Bernie Sanders, whom many of her peers backed. But Ms. Conner changed course in this year’s campaign for governor, after concluding that Democrats could only win with more daring messages on issues like public health and immigration. And so on a recent Wednesday, she enlisted two other young women to volunteer for Abdul El-Sayed, a 33-year-old advocate of single-payer health care running an uphill race in Michigan to

There’s no question that the story of the Democratic party right now is about the ascending left. There’s a bumper crop of self-consciously progressive candidates running for office this year, while many relatively non-ideological “Establishment Democrats” are embracing policy positions and political messages long associated with party insurgents. The relative strength of various Democratic factions in Congress won’t be possible to reliably measure until after the midterms. But with the 2020 presidential election cycle soon to begin (the first candidate debates will probably be held about this time next year), it’s looking like

A 22-year-old woman was changing in a New Jersey clothing store’s dressing room on Thursday when she made a horrifying discovery, according to police. There was a man snapping pictures of the woman on his cell phone as the woman changed clothes at the shop in Edison, New Jersey. And when the woman confronted the man, she found out he wasn’t just anyone. The man told her he was a law enforcement officer, according to Middlesex County prosecutors. That’s when the woman called 911. Danuel S. Brown, a 30-year-old special agent in the FBI’s New York field office, was arrested

   

 



 
Is California’s Democratic

By Nov. 7, Democrats will learn if their left turn steered them to victory or took them off a cliff. The state party’s endorsement of Kevin de León, a self-proclaimed socialist’s upset of an establishment Democrat in a New York City congressional primary and talk of abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement and enacting single-payer health care show an embrace of progressive politics that heartens liberal activists enraged by conservative policies pursued by President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans. But it’s unclear whether moving left will energize voters or endanger Democrats’ chances in competitive districts in the Nov. 6 mid-term elections,

Two years ago, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced a set of aggressive policies to reduce his country´s greenhouse gas emissions, centered on a nationwide price on carbon. As that price is about to take effect, growing opposition has put Trudeau on the defensive and has provincial governments rolling back other measures, raising questions about the appetite of this oil-exporting country to tackle climate change. Ontario, Canada´s most populous province, said Thursday it would join a legal challenge against Trudeau´s carbon pricing. Polls suggest Alberta, the center of Canada´s oil and gas industry, will soon elect a government that opposes

The winds and the waves on Table Rock Lake near the Missouri tourist mecca of Branson were whipping up. A nice day on the water was rapidly deteriorating. A storm that had raced across the Midwest earlier Thursday was rolling in with strong gusts that rocked the boats on the lake in southwestern Missouri. One of them, an amphibious vessel known as a duck boat, made it to shore, ahead of another Ride the Ducks Branson craft carrying 31 people. "We got out of it and made it to the ramp. And I turned around and watched the other boat nose-dive, and my heart dropped," passenger Kourtney Parker said. Onlookers desperately tried to help

LOS ANGELES — A small crowd that gathered Thursday outside the Los Angeles office of U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters to counter an expected protest by a self-styled militia group burned an American flag taken from the back of a pickup truck. The incident happened after the far-right Oath Keepers group didn´t appear at the office after saying it would rally against the congresswoman. A group of counter-protesters there to support Waters were chanting "black power" and other slogans when the pickup approached. The vehicle, occupied by two men who appeared to be white, was stopped by the crowd. Some marchers

Jeanine Pirro gave a glowing assessment of Donald Trump’s chances for 2020, saying that if the president decides to run for re-election, he would probably be unbeatable. “I have to tell you. I don’t think he can be beat right now. I think the left is so disorganized,” Pirro told TheWrap in an interview Tuesday, saying that she could not think of a single Democrat who could pose a credible threat to Trump in 2020. “They are just making fools of themselves. They protest and they are not even sure what they’re protesting,” she added. “If you say something that

The couple wed in Rome in 1998 one year after meeting in Sarajevo, Bosnia, over "late-night margaritas." Amanpour, 60, and Rubin, 58, share an 18-year-old son, Darius.

President Trump’s longtime lawyer, Michael D.

The Justice Department is investigating Mr. Cohen’s involvement in paying women to tamp down embarrassing news stories about Mr. Trump ahead of the 2016 election.

Since her surprise primary victory over 10-term Congressman Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th District, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been promoted by the media as the prototype of a new generation of young progressives destined to replace the leadership of the Democratic Party. Unfortunately for her media boosters, however, she keeps blowing her lines. It’s not just her rote advocacy of single-payer healthcare and guaranteed government jobs, or even that she backs wacky ideas like abolishing ICE and occupying airports — Ocasio-Cortez is genuinely clueless. She outed herself, in several recent interviews, as functionally illiterate in economics, international relations, and history.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is making plans to move the headquarters of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) out of Washington, D.C., to a city in the West. The federal government owns 640 million acres in the U.S., or roughly 28 percent of the nation’s entire landmass. The BLM manages 248.3 million acres of public land, more than any other agency, according to a March 2017 report by the Congressional Research Service.

Beating your wife is worse than protesting during the national anthem. So, too, is sexually assaulting a woman. While that might seem obvious, it needs to be clarified given The Associated Press´ report Thursday that the Miami Dolphins are now including protesting during the anthem on their list of "conduct detrimental to the club." Under NFL rules, that´s an offense punishable by a suspension of up to four games. The Dolphins later told the AP that "all options are still open." But to give you an idea of how heinous at least one NFL team sees trying to draw attention to racial and economic inequality, a four-game suspension is

Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, the reported FBI lovebirds, are the poster children for the next “Don’t Text and Investigate” public service ads airing soon at an FBI office near you. Their extraordinary texting affair on their government phones has given the FBI a black eye, laying bare a raw political bias brought into the workplace that agents are supposed to check at the door when they strap on their guns and badges.

Before the word "resignation" became a euphemism for being fired, it connoted a sense of public integrity and personal honor. Attorney General Elliot Richardson and his deputy, William Ruckelshaus, showed both qualities when they resigned from the Nixon administration during the Saturday Night Massacre in 1973. Jimmy Carter’s secretary of state, Cyrus Vance, did likewise when he resigned during the Iran hostage crisis in 1980. Assuming Mike Pompeo and John Bolton still have their own senses intact, they, too, should resign following the epic disgrace of the U.S.-Russia summit inHelsinki on Monday. So should their senior staff. I don’t suggest

In the past few days, President Trump has given at least some Republicans reason to express displeasure over his relationship with Russia. First he performed a pathetic ritual of subservience before Vladimir Putin, standing beside the Russian leader — after a private meeting between the two, which no aides were permitted to attend — and dismissing the copious evidence of a Russian attack on the 2016 election in deference to Putin’s word. Then we learned that Putin had suggested that we make Americans available to the Kremlin for questioning, including Michael McFaul, the former U.S. ambassador to Russia, in exchange

A research group in New Jersey has taken a fresh look at postelection polling data and concluded that the number of noncitizens voting illegally in U.S. elections is likely far greater than previous estimates. As many as 5.7 million noncitizens may have voted in the 2008 election, which put Barack Obama in the White House. The research organization Just Facts, a widely cited, independent think tank led by self-described conservatives and libertarians, revealed its number-crunching in a report on national immigration.
