At some point, the whole global warming thing, it's just Darwinian. It's not even worth trying to have a discussion. Whatever action we do or don't take as a society is independent of the discussion here. We make our choices and prosper or not. So, for this thread, let's just abandon the non-believers and their offspring to the fate they deserve, and concentrate our efforts on prosperous survival. You guys who think that global warming's a scam, or that it'll be a wonderful new world, just keep away please. Suppose you were living in the US and had to plant yourself and your family somewhere for the next century. All things considered -- global warming, peak oil, sagging dollar, you name it -- where would you go? In other threads here, the Pacific Northwest has been suggested as a good place -- lots of rainfall, plenty of hydro electric, and so on. I have a Canadian buddy from grad school who suggested the Sunshine Coast, which is north of there. Myself, a US East Coaster, I'm thinking upstate NY/Finger Lakes. Well watered, civil people. I like Virginia's Northern Neck, but over the intermediate term (couple of centuries, say) it's too low-lying to be viable if the shoreline becomes unstable, as may be likely over that time span. And I have to say that if I had to pick a place based on the civility and intelligence of the people I know from there, Minnesota would be highest on my list. (Plus, in the US, it's well established that the farther north you go , the smarter the people are on average, at least in terms of test scores. And I say this as a lifelong Southerner). Far as I can tell, none of the serious climate scientists will make projections of (e.g.) rainfall by region. So I don't see a heck of a lot of hard data relevant to the decision. Anybody care to chime on on where you'd go, and why?
