John Oliver explains why our federal system for financing flood recovery perpetuates a pattern of destruction and why you should never offer a tortilla chip to a seagull.

Once the floods fry all Americas electronic goods they will be free to read science books.

I'm gonna go with: Fuck you, John Oliver, for ad homing the guy that did an episode in a comical TV show, on the same exact topic, after having experienced it personally, which was WAY better and more honest show than this low water mark (pun), which you then cut from and utterly twisted to the opposite of the context it was made in. Dissing the guy you ripped off in lack of originality is beyond low. So disapointing episode John. Bottom-feeder dickish move to slander people representing your political peevs while plagiarizing them. SMH. This is the Stossel ep. that John rips and disses in one: https://youtu.be/SJKv2iyBCIc

Sounds about right, businesses getting rich while people pay emotionally and monetarily to a failing govt. Perfectly describes USA.

So true. Hawaiians who chose to live on the beach have shelter houses that can cheaply be destroyed. They take important things and evacuate then once over rebuild cheap housing to begin again. They know the big storm is always coming.

If FEMA is throwing all that much money at the problem. They could just offer to buy the site. In the long run they would throw less money at the issue instead of helping 40x 17 min in lol... Okay i got it. and yeah that guy is stupid ahha

Here's a thought. 1. Take some of the millions of dollars that will be paid to repeatedly rebuild homes on the water's edge in coming years. 2. Use them to build new homes higher up, further from water, near a good-sized storm drain or similar. 3. Move the people to the new homes, tear down the old ones and avoid future rebuilding expenses. 4. If anyone wants to keep living in their coastal disaster area, inform them that the insurance discount is being phased out and will be gone a little while after the time everyone has had a chance to move to a more sensibly located home. Make sure the homes are in fact ready before phasing out, obviously. 5. Enjoy the yearly savings! Maybe spend them on health care and education?

Forgot to mention that flood prone areas are owned by rich people who rent to poor people and get way too much to rebuild. So they rebuild with the cheapest material and labor to pocket the difference. Renters either need to move or withstand the poor living conditions.

The city I live in in Wisconsin got flooded last week. At least one person died, numerous businesses and homes suffered lots of water damage, and some roads have been shut down. It's surprising to me that a place like Wisconsin can have such bad flooding, but I should expect it more with climate change I guess.

somebody was on camera stating they had pocketed millions in FEMA checks (17 million last time) for overpayment dolled out to Mar A Lago. FEMA flood insurance is a huge money grab for the class of people that can afford beachfront property. If those owners had to secure private sector insurance, they'd know if they could afford it, they don't need it. Tell these people to move someplace where their fool shacks aren't built on the sand.

Just wait for the shelf to drop. The sea level will immediately rise up one story, and many will be flooded. They are probably waiting for it to happen so they can say "oh, we really cannot sustain using cars like this.. we totally didn't know, and ya know that evidence was just 50/50 until now.. also, beef is no longer sustainable." If that happens we know how little to trust the government, which is that they are more dangerous to us than a fucking wild tiger.. I mean, they haven't even gotten rid of the "elephant in the room".

Finally, somebody else is saying what I have been saying for ages... We insist on building in flood zones & then whinge when it floods... It is absurd! We are not stupid, we have the tools, knowledge, resources, skills, etc. to build in safe places or ensure that an unsafe place is made secure prior to building. I am not joking, this is all just insanity! I don't care what color or group you claim, they all are making the same mistake, they assume that you can somehow isolate 1 part & claim its more important than the whole. Conservatives argue fiscal responsibility, liberals argue social responsibility, green party argue environmental responsibility, etc. What's wrong with them all? Of course you must be fiscally, socially, environmentally, etc. responsible to be a proper public servant... However, you can't take any part out & still have a functional reasonable system. For example, it will cost far, far less to tear the old stuff down & rebuild or relocate to housing that is safe in its environment, then any of the other existing or proposed solutions. I'm so fed up with all of this BS, sadly that fact in myself & others is what allowed trump to be elected because people hoped he might follow his commitments... However, he was never a real option for reform, but reform is still possible! The same power that elected that con man can united end his & the rest of the corrupted crooks. The public are truly the power now, it's our turn to show history that we can do better than the myriad of prior corrupted governance. We can easily create a secure intranet voting system where as topics to be decided come up for vote, people can sign on to vote after watching a brief video to educate them on the relevant subject /options; paired with periodically elect representatives for various leadership positions & fill the rest with hiring the best candidate for the job. Built in to each decision is the ability for either the judicial system or public to either fire/block & /or demand independent reviews of said decisions if reasonable grounds that it is needed to preserve justice & fair, informed representation. There you go, a way to solve the current, darkly comedic democratic issues in our great "democracies"! Adam

Have to say this is happening everywhere in the world. Water side properties are more valuable because people truly want to live there. And sometimes they view flooding as non-issue. John was right that it is not how people work. Also true about those people who built their lives when authorities allowed them to do so in territories that now are flooding. While they might have some knowledge, sometimes it is not really a choice of knowing when water will start to come.

Buyer beware, is the old saying. These people bought these houses in precarious locations knowing there was a risk. Government is there to bail out people in case of unusual disaster - not to reward foolishness.

This is my issue when it it took Prince Harry to marry someone who is Megan and then you all decide to tell story about King George and his wife who was an African American was on the throne of England know why did you weigh for princess Megan to come along for you to a knowledge that you had that information and you should have used it long time ago and brought it up

A lot of homes were built before fema regulations were established, most homes today have a build date of either 1960 or 1970, it’s no wonder they’re built in the middle of the creek.

i live in a city where spring flooding is an annual thing, because we're right on the edge of a major riverway. it's happened every year for the past 40 years, consistently getting higher and higher. and yet, this fall, they started building luxury houses DIRECTLY ON THE WATERFRONT. so what happened when spring rolled around? these million dollar homes, all about 75% done, all getting washed away because they're pretty much underwater. like, why do people just not get it??

Don't flee away from the water. Make the water flee from you. -- Best regards, Dutch citizen. (Invest in dams and pumping stations, create a separate "government" divided into regions for water management, and tax based on the costs of keeping the water out. If you live in a polder area or delta, you pay for the infrastructure)
