Re: “A new report lays bare the effects of climate change on the N.C. coast

Mr. Remo,
The elites are certain that they are infallible, just like in the Inquisitions.
Considering that Sea Level Rise Planning will force loss of billions of dollars property from taxpaying local homeowners, businesses, fishermen , and farmers, many of whom have worked for, owned and paid taxes on the property for generations, some folks and politicians think that we need to be right before "taking " their property with questionable regulations. Apparently you have no such qualms.
Again, if Sea Level is going to rise rapidly, we need to know it an plan for it, but the refusal of the CRC Science Panel to answer simple questions calls to question their theories. How can we trust their fore-sight, if their hind-sight is flawed?
As you seem to have all the answers, perhaps you can answer the questions?

Re: “A new report lays bare the effects of climate change on the N.C. coast

Infallible ,,,, but No Answers?
Over and over and over we have asked the CRC Science Panel: -Why FEMA LiDAR Flood Insurance mapping shows Sea Level falling in Dare Co.? - Why DCM data shows more Coastal Accretion than Erosion? -Is there another Temperature Record that clarifies artificially heated NOAA records? -What do the US-Coast Survey tide gauge records from 1850's show? or, -Do US-Coast Survey charts show extensive Tideland Inundation over 160 years, perhaps confirming the Panel's theories?
If the Panel is so certain their theories are correct, why won’t they answer these simple questions? They view the EPA and UN as being infallible, and call backyard facts that doesn’t fit their theories - “irrelevant”.
If Sea Level Rise is going to accelerate appreciably, we need to know it and plan for it, BUT we need factual explanations of real world observations more than questionable political theory.
Bill Price
We also need comprehensive reporting of real world facts more than superficial hyperbole.

Re: “Durham needs 1,600 new trees a year

Don't mow your Grass for a couple of years, and you'll be surprised how many trees you have, all for FREE !
( Oh, That's right, if you don't mow your grass, the City will mow your Grass and trees down for you, and bill you. This is about Paying to plant trees. )

Re: “N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences director puts kibosh on documentary about sea-level rise

Reading all this, I just had this thought.
Most everyone agrees that Sea Level has been rising very very slowly since the last Ice Age (glaciation) , and even NOAA and Sea Grant acknowledge that there has been " no signal" of acceleration for the NC coast. So why have we had an acceleration of Accretion by 11% and a 13% decline of erosion of NC Sea shore since 1980? Irrespective of acceleration, why do we have more Accretion and less Erosion if Sea Level is rising? Or is all this just mumbo - jumbo Political FoSi?

Re: “N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences director puts kibosh on documentary about sea-level rise

We need to know what is causing beach erosion, where and why. The CRC Science Panel ( CRC SP) and the Coastal Federation (CF) assert that the Sea Level has been, and will force erosion of the Coast and inundation of the tidelands; however, actual data from the NC Division of Coastal Management (DCM) shows Accretion increasing by 11% and Erosion decreasing by 13% since 1980, with most of the Accretion having taken place prior to most of the re-nourishment projects. This differs completely with the Scare Science of the CRC SP and the CF. Interestingly, the CRC SP has declined to answer questions regarding their science, have declined to do a comparative historical survey of NC Tidelands, and a comprehensive " in-the -Water" study of what is causing erosion has been blocked since the late '90's. Fortunately the General Assembly determined it would be better to have some real science, not TV science, before implementing planning policy that would take people's homes.

Re: “The GOP's free-market reforms are aimed at public education

After decades of Liberal Education policies, many Schools in NC have a 50% dropout rate, and it is estimated that 20% of the population is functionally illiterate ( i.e. can't fill out an employment application). The situation is getting worse to the point that America ( and NC ) is losing our competitive position, but, for the Professional Educators, it's all about getting more, and more, and more money.
Just how bad does it have to get before we do something ?
Medium wage America has 14% manufacturing employment and falling .. High wage Germany has 34% manufacturing employment and rising.. What's going on? Well , Germany has 2/3 education in trades, while in America, every student is supposed to go to college.
Not working out very well, is it?

Re: “The One Percent will eat the poor, and other prophecies

How come it's greed for a person to want to keep the money they made,
but it's not greed to want to take money for yourself from those that earned it?
