    Yeah….I thought that, scientifically speaking, the reason that tropical cyclone damage numbers are climbing is too much seaside development in vulnerable areas.

    Out of the frying pan, into the fire?

    The housing crisis is finding housing in a place where the government can’t come & take all your money inn taxes & stop you smoking. This may not be the best way to solve that but there is no doubt it is a problem.

    Seasteding is not a particularly environmentalist issue – if anything it seems to be a high tech subset of survivalism who mostly think greens are only any good drowned in mayonaise.
