Response to guardian (Reply #82)

Tue Aug 7, 2012, 02:35 PM

83. First, I said that we didn't...

get flooded and that the adverse effects of Irene were far worse hundreds of miles inland. In fact, we've been here for nearly thirty years and have never had a drop of water in the house.

Second, I never said beach house. Not that I wouldn't love to own one.

Third, my point was that we WILL adapt just fine, but there will be a few places that will be dramatically affected. There are waterfront areas here on Long Island that are uninsurable. If portions of them were washed away it would be very difficult to rebuild. I'm not talking about Westhampton Beach, but middle and working class communities.

I travel to New Orleans periodically. It's my favorite American city and have considered making it my permanent hometown.

Most, if not all, of the world's great cities will weather the rising tide just fine.

I don't get your point.
