There are a lot of misconceptions about our fair state.

Would it surprise you, jgw, to learn that our Trumpian governor is working hard to solve the water woes that his billionaire TEA Party predecessor ignored for eight years? He's doing such a good job as governor that he will likely get my vote in two years.

Most of Florida is high and dry, we don't have much in the way of flooding here. South Florida wouldn't either if the Army Corps of Engineers hadn't drained the swamps to create farmland and changed the natural flow of fresh water. Governor Trumplover is doing his best to fix it. But it's still kind of like capitalist solutions to the problems that capitalism has caused.

Sinkholes are as rare as hen's teeth.

Salt water intrusion is a problem everywhere along the coasts. The more fresh water they pump out of the ground the more salt water they pull into it.

Ever heard of King Tides? Miami streets are underwater when they come now. Didn't used to be that way. But it's going to get worse. And worse. 65 degrees in Antactica the other day. Hottest January on record just passed.

I should be safe from floods here for the next 100 years but after that I'm outa here.

Well Greger, all you gotta do is hold on until they come up with the diabetes cure, and then the rejuvenation treatment. I read a scifi book a while back where a guy in a memory care facility got a new medical breakthrough treatment and came back to productive middle age. It was pretty interesting.

If I play my cards right when I die I might be able to get myself re-incarnated. I'd really like to see how this all plays out. I don't think the keepers of the underworld are unreasonable...

If you could come back as anything, what would that be? Reincarnation seems as reasonable as anything. Heck, my mom says she is a Christian and she believes in reincarnation!

In the spirit of the topic, and because Iím not thinking of a tipping point person related to environmental crises, Iíll say Hitler. And I would commit suicide in 1930. Maybe that would have a positive impact on a large-scale crisis?

Hmmm... maybe this reincarnation thing could be gamed to endless benefit? Kinda like the genie and three wishes, when you wish for a million more wishes.

A diligent reincarnator could take out every Regressive a$$hole that ever lived!

Sorry, Logs, time is a one way street, even reincarnation can't take you back in time. You'd have to re-set the entire Universe to pull that off. Not to mention all the other universes it might be attached to.

I've done a long painful stint as an ugly and stupid man. I'd like to come back as a smart beautiful woman. But I doubt if the keepers of the underworld are liable to be that obliging.

Bummer... maybe I can come back as a tree in an old growth forest? Sequoia sempervirens.
