    THE PREMATURE EVACUATION FROM CLIMATE CHANGE EXCITEMENT

    Global Warming Is Coming, but Climate Hysteria Doesn’t Help Anyone; The Guardian's dire report of a climate-change catastrophe unfolding in Miami is a case of premature evacuation

    Michael Grunwald, July 14, 2014 (Time)

    “…I’ve described [Miami’s] South Beach as the canary in America’s coal mine for climate change, and the canary has started coughing a bit, but it isn’t dead or even very sick. I’m sorry to spoil the climate porn, but…[while the changes] are harbingers of a potentially catastrophic future, they are not currently catastrophic. They are annoying…[and so is] yellow climate journalism…[L]et’s get real. The Pacific island of Kiribati is drowning; Miami Beach is not yet drowning…We should fight global warming — and the powers that be, including Senator Marco Rubio and Governor Rick Scott, should stop looking away — because it’s a potential disaster for Miami and the rest of this very nice planet.

I understand that stories about how climate change is already affecting our cities and our farms and our lives…can make the issue feel more pressing to ordinary Americans.
