It's amazing that PBS runs these sickening ads from our corporate masters and still pretends to be independent. Maybe that is what makes this show so ridiculous. Here's my comment on it, after a fellow commenter left the link at a Climate Progress post related to the drought in Texas:
paulm, that video “Climate Change at the Doorstep” is hysterically funny and a great example of Richard Pauli’s comments. These people in Norfolk VA are already witnessing the sea rise, and are paying millions (in FEMA dollars!) to raise houses and roads, they’re talking about rebuilding infrastructure like bridges, tunnels and high speed rail, and the Navy is spending tens of millions to redo piers – and it’s all a complete waste!
The couple they interview whose waterfront house has been flooded several times have replaced appliances and heating ducts multiple times and they talk about how “expensive” it is – when obviously, it’s not merely expensive, it’s ultimately just impossible. Talk about cognitive dissonance…
Meanwhile Virginia has Cuccinelli petitioning the EPA to not regulate greenhouse gases, and investigating – no, harassing climate scientist Michael Mann.
One resident who lives further from shore actually says, he doesn’t begrudge tax dollars to adapt to sea level rise but only to a point, because on the other hand, all those people with seaside property never invited him to the dock to have a margarita at sunset…priceless.
