If you didn't see the cake today, it's probably because this news story took it:

As Climate Change Worsens, US Weighs Which Communities to Save


As climate change gets worse, tribes like Shoalwater Bay are being squeezed between existential threats and brutal financial arithmetic. Consigned to marginal land more than a century ago by the United States government, some tribes are now trying to relocate to areas better protected from extreme weather yet lack the money to pay for that move.

In response, the Biden administration has created what appears to be the first program in American history specifically designed to help relocate communities threatened by climate change. The Department of the Interior is now deciding which tribes will win funding this year — and which will have to keep waiting as their land falls farther into the sea.

That decision, expected soon, is likely to reverberate far beyond Indigenous Americans, by establishing a model for other agencies to follow.

The federal government has been quietly trying to shift its approach away from endlessly rebuilding after disasters and toward helping the most exposed communities retreat from vulnerable areas. But moving is expensive, and as disasters intensify, demand from communities to relocate will only increase, straining the government's ability to pay for it.


Swan, your attempts to make me think Climate Change is a sham aren't going to work. The US government says you're wrong. Your argument is with Biden so take it up with him.

Fortunately Russia is silencing western diplomacy. There is nothing good about the current situation. No one wins with the current situation.
