Fuck then, bye bye New Orleans...What do you do with those people?
flood insurance was designed to give people enough money to move or rebuild somewhere else less prone to flooding
but they are retarded and say i will rebuild
they should be given 1 payout for flood insurance with gvt assistance, then have to pay for themselves next time

I saw a show about this, it is pretty fucked up. The original idea of Flood Insurance was so people could MOVE. This is true. And now it's totally fucked up. Most people can't afford to sell their houses, because no one wants to buy in a flood area, but the price of new homes is higher than the amount they get from flood insurance now, which is just enough to repair their home. Yet if they get flooded repeatedly, flood insurance can end up paying more than the cost of a new home. Meanwhile, back at "can I have a summer home on the beach" lots of claims are for second homes in resort areas. And 12 counties historically have used about 1/3 of the funds.

Catching the native crayfish as a kid is what got me into nature and biology. There are none left round here. I know a guy who catches the signals to eat - apparently they're excellent - but i've never seen one myself.

Quote:
Other suitable animals are simply gone. Carolina Parakeets, for example, once lived in the beetle's historic range in the Midwest and Southeast, but the last one died in 1918. Then there?s the gaping silhouette of the Passenger Pigeon, a bird that once blackened the skies in flocks of hundreds of millions or even billions before going extinct in 1914. Fledgings would have served as baby-beetle food, and according to one estimate, more Passenger Pigeons lived in the beetle?s historic range than there are birds?total, of all species?overwintering in today?s United States. In a cruel twist, then, the beetle?s decline could be a ghostly echo, a haunting that has lingered long after that prior extinction.

Probably gone from Canadian range before 2011:

Weird though - it says a report from Nova scotia was probably wrong, they never lived here, but I have a really clear memory of watching a few of them burying a mouse.

ETA: A bit of searching reveals I likely saw its relatives, some of them look very similar.

Until we prove ourselves capable of an Anthropocene worthy of the name, perhaps we should more humbly refer to this provisional moment of Earth history that we’re living through as we do the many other disruptive spasms in Earth history. Though dreadfully less catchy, perhaps we could call it the “Mid-Pleistocene Thermal Maximum.” After all, though the mammoths are gone, their Ice Age is only on hold, delayed as it is for a few tens of thousands of years by the coming greenhouse fever. Or perhaps we’re living through the “Pleistocene Carbon Isotope Excursion,” as we call many of the mysterious global paroxysms from the earliest era of animal life, the Paleozoic. Or maybe we’re even at the dawning of the “Quaternary Anoxic Event” or, God forbid, the “End-Pleistocene Mass Extinction” if shit really hits the fan in the next few centuries. But please, not the Anthropocene. You wouldn’t stand next to a T. rex being vaporized 66 million years ago and be tempted to announce to the dawning of the hour-long Asteroidocene. You would at least wait for the dust to settle before declaring the dawn of the age of mammals.

I disagree. Our most enduring legacy is going to be piles of garbage and pieces of plastic spread all over the world. Plastic has now been found in the bottoms of some of the deepest trenches in the ocean.



They will call it the "microplastic" layer.

I think it is this one, but the Wikipedia info on blanket octopodes is pretty thin on information:

Quote:
The common blanket octopus or violet blanket octopus (Tremoctopus violaceus) is a large octopus of the family Tremoctopodidae found worldwide in the epipelagic zone of warm seas. The degree of sexual dimorphism in this species is very high, with females growing to two meters in length, whereas males, the first live specimen of which was seen off the Great Barrier Reef in 2002, grow to about 2.4 cm. Individual weights of males and females differ by a factor of about 10,000.[3]
Males and small females of less than 7 cm have been reported to carry with them the tentacles of the Portuguese man o' war, to whose poison they are immune. It is speculated that these tentacles serve both as a defensive mechanism and possibly as a method of capturing prey. This mechanism is no longer useful at larger sizes, which may be why males of this species are so small. The web between the arms of the mature female octopus serves as a defensive measure as well, making the animal appear larger, and being easily detached if bitten into by a predator.[3]

An exotic plant has produced male and female cones outdoors in Britain for what is believed to be the first time in 60m years. Botanists say the event is a sign of global heating.
Two cycads (Cycas revoluta), a type of primitive tree that dominated the planet 280m years ago, have produced cones on the sheltered undercliffs of Ventnor Botanic Garden on the Isle of Wight.
The species is native to Japan and usually only found indoors as an ornamental plant in Britain, but one of the garden’s plants has produced what is believed to be the first outdoor female cone on record in the UK.
Cycads previously lived in what is now Britain millions of years ago, with fossils of the plants found in the Jurassic strata of rock stretching from the Isle of Wight to the Dorset coast, an era when the Earth’s climate had naturally high levels of carbon dioxide.

See? Soon there will be no such thing as an "invasive species", just survivors.

I have unidentifiable little pink flowers growing in the gravel by my driveway. I've now found a couple hundred more of them growing along the gravel road for about 10 metres from my mailbox. Maybe they're also dinosaur plants.

No records matched...

I have looked at hundreds of wildflowers online now. It still looks like a miniature version of a gentian that only grows in Utah.

I suppose it's remotely possible that a truck that was in Utah picked up mud there with seeds in it, dropped the mud on a dirt road in Nova Scotia, and they grew but small because the climate is far from ideal.

Centaurium calycosum, which is half a metre tall.

How about its European relative Centaurium erythraea which has apparently been introduced to North America and is found in Nova Scotia?

Wrong flower cluster fom, but just as likely.

Or it's a small native century plant that never makes the flower books because of its insignificance.
