    Climate Change Could Sink The Border Wall

    Climate change would swamp Trump’s border wall; Warming-fueled monster deluges keep flooding our 1,254-mile Rio Grande border with Mexico.

    Joe Romm, April 5, 2017 (ThinkProgress)

    “…[Building the promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border] will be a whole lot harder thanks to climate change…The problem is that the vast majority of that border runs straight down the middle of 1,254 snaking miles of the Rio Grande River — and ever-worsening, climate change-fueled floods greatly complicate any plausible design…[During ]the devastating Texas flooding in May 2015…Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) was forced to declare a state of disaster in 46 counties…[and an October 2015 study concluded human-caused global warming contributed to the flooding. The] hotter it gets, the more water evaporates into the air, resulting in much more water available for deluges…But if you put the wall far enough inland so it isn’t actually sitting in the floodplain — which, again, keeps expanding because of human-caused climate change — then the government will have to [exercise eminent domain and] seize even more massive amounts of land from the Texans…” click here for more
