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
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)
if you doubt that the weather is changing just google April 29 2014 and Pensacola, when they received 2 feet of rain in about a 12 -24 hour period, none of this was due to a hurricane, just straight rain, you can see some of the damage in this footage taken 2 days later here.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVJeJXy_unU

I am not sure this is a flooding issue, this sounds like a construction one. As if the foundations are not being protected from the water properly. I am not sure what the regulations on construction are like, but it is strange listening to this know what it is like here and there.
Aloha! I was raised on the island of Kauai - and I really feel that you guys might want to do an commentary update to this based on recent flooding over the weekend here in Hawaii. Anyone who doubts climate change should be flown to the middle of Hanalei. Kauai is the wettest spot in the world. They are saying 28 inches of rain poured down in 24 hrs. It has been reported that it BROKE rain and river gauges so they don't even really know how much it rained in a 36 hr period. http://www.civilbeat.org/2018/04/kauai-the-path-to-recovery-in-hanalei-will-be-a-long-one/
I once gave a goose at a campsite some Doritos. After being stalked for days, the goose started runninging into my knees, demanding More and More Doritos. I had to hide in the tent at that point to escape the Goose
@16:51: There's actually a saying in Vietnamese to describe someone who is delusionally assinine or stubborn in the face of the inevitable before they finally act, "waiting around until the water gets to your feet."
Seriously, instead of paying continuously for these people's houses to be rebuilt over and over the Government should just prohibit and enforce the prohibition of building in flood prone areas. Sure, it means kicking people out of their homes, but it means millions of dollars won't be wasted because some hermits feel like getting their properties remodeled at the expense of our taxes.
BloomSTRAD I know it's a hazard, but if an adult wants to waste their money and build a house where there's a hazard, they should have the right to do so. So long as they don't ask you to pay for it, you should have no problem with it.
And they shouldn't be allowed to build in said places BECAUSE IT IS A HAZARD. Don't come at me with "People are Adults" because you know very well adults are idiots too. Shampoos have labels for a reason and for the same reason people shouldn't be allowed to build wherever the fuck they please.
BloomSTRAD I see your point, I do. But, people are adults and I think they should be able to build their homes wherever they want. It's very stupid to do so; like a man who does not believe, a house built on the sand will soon sink or be swept away and destroyed. But it's still their money, their foolishness, and their property. If they want to build the high flood area, they just shouldn't receive government-subsidized insurance for it.
People shouldn't be allowed to build wherever the fuck they want. There are risks that come with building on locations that are extremely prone to disasters and to minimize the claims over pretentious ignorance the best way is to prevent it to begin with. A foolish man builds his house on sand.
Work in insurance, he painted a completely false picture. With a catastrophic event, the service fees we make from handling NFIP claims (which are deserved because there are costs associated with handling the claims) are tiny compared to the losses we suffer on every other insurance line we write, besides personal flood. He completely mischaracterized this. Insurance companies got destroyed last year, read any article on it.
So we cut the flood insurance subsidies by the govt. Or solely cover major cities. Let people stupid enough to not consider risk lose everything.....tax dollars should not be wasted on idiots like that
