Since Miami was mentioned as not having sunk, that’s true, it hasn’t sunk... not yet.
But as someone who has lived in Miami most of my almost 70 years, I can say unequivocally, there are areas that flood now at high tides that never did before.
Additionally, Miami Beach is spending roughly $500 million on (questionable) pumps and other flood control measures due to never seen before flooding. Miami recently passed a $400 million bond for (questionable) pumps in the Brickell area, again due to never seen before flooding (except in hurricanes).
Miami is especially vulnerable due to our porous limestone foundation. We get water from six sides, including from the ground up.
Clearly something is happening, that fact is not in question, and the folks who are much smarter than I am, and have gone to school much longer than I did (and yes, got better much better grades than I did), and who study this for a living, and who recreate these conditions with these outcomes in their labs, say this is primarily due to the effects of burning fossil fuels.
So who am I going to believe, these scientists, or the folks who think the earth is flat, the moon landing was filmed in Pete’s garage, and who climb in bed every night wearing cone shaped tinfoil hats so they can pick up cosmic signals?
My money is on the smart guys, it usually pays off.
