Victims Of Climate Change, Or Of Human Stupidity

It has been a busy month of August for all things climate change…apologies then if contrarily to this site’s policy, some news will appear that have been already well beaten by people like Watts, McIntyre, Marohasy, Nova, etc etc

Despite its title (“Coastal home owners face huge losses from rising sea“), there is nothing in a recent Reuters article about any rise in sea levels due to climate change or whatever else. Funny also how the solution to the “huge losses” is clearly at hand, and yet people blame “climate change” for…a presumed risk:
