Adaptation

Something that has never impressed me about the global warming crowd is their under appreciation of the human’s ability to adapt — especially to relatively slow changing things like climate.

This shows a lack of depth in thinking about history and even modern day events.  For example, Detroit shrunk quickly as people left it in search of better opportunity.

I saw another example recently on a trip to New Orleans.  Where I live, advertising for local dry basement companies is typical.

The New Orleans equivalent seems to be elevation companies.  These companies will raise your home to keep it dry during floods.
