Jeff VanderMeer in Current Affairs: The Annihilation of Florida: An Overlooked National Tragedy. “An accelerating race to destroy Florida’s wilderness shows what we value and previews our collective future during the climate crisis. “”Prodevelopment flacks like to pull out the estimates of the millions who will continue to flock to Florida by 2030 or 2040 to justify rampant development. Even some Florida economists ignore the effects of the climate crisis in their projects for 2049, expecting continued economic growth. but these estimates are just a grim joke, and some of those regurgitating them know that. By 2050, the world likely will be grappling with the fallout from 1.5- to 2-degree temperature rise and it’s unlikely people will be flocking to a state quickly dissolving around all of its edges.” (I wasn’t planning to flock there until the DeSantis tenure dissolves.)
