President Obama says that we need to turn control of America’s future over to the UN, in order to prevent street fishing in Miami.
“I think that as the science around climate change is more accepted, as people start realizing that even today you can put a price on the damage that climate change is doing – you know, you go down to Miami and when it’s flooding at high tide on a sunny day and fish are swimming through the middle of the streets – you know, that there’s a cost to that,” Obama said at the Paris climate talks.
A flood killed 3.7 million people in China in 1931, and a drought killed 24 million people in China in 1907. But those can’t compare with the severity of imaginary street fishing in Miami.
In 1926, they did some serious street fishing in Miami.
But none in 2015.
While Miami Beach has certainly suffered from sunny-day floods during high tides, recent reports about fish swimming in the street have come from further north in Broward County and are far from widespread. No one’s pulling out their fishing rods on the road.
Sea level in Florida has been rising at a steady rate since CO2 was 300 PPM. People who claim that lowering CO2 will slow down sea level rise in Florida, are either idiots or liars.
