Dear Climate Hustle nutburgers, Please watch this short video. Love, Retiring Guy

For Miami Beach residents, rising sea levels caused by climate change is a reality.  There's no 'junk science' about it.

And then read about how, in South Florida, climate change has  become a bipartisan issue.

S. Florida Republicans lead their party from climate change denial. (Miami Herald, 5/9/2016)
Republican Rep. Carlos Curbelo and Democratic Rep. Ted Deutch, whose South Florida districts are already enduring increased flooding, salt water intrusion and other effects of rising sea levels, are leading the first truly bipartisan congressional effort to tackle climate change. Joined by Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a Miami Republican, they’ve formed a caucus that uses an unusual “buddy system” in which each Democratic member must bring along a Republican colleague willing to renounce party orthodoxy and stop minimizing the peril – or even existence – of global warming.
