South Miami Mayor Totally Wants A Climate Change Tower Of Shame

Leftists are very big on telling everyone that shaming and bullying are Bad Things. Funny how they use them so often themselves, including for their pet cultish political project, anthropogenic climate change

(Creative Loafing Tampa Bay) South Miami Mayor Phillip Stoddard has an idea on how to deal with elected officials who deny climate change’s existence: build a “tower of shame” with each of their names on it.

“And starting at the bottom, at sea level, we inscribe the name and elected offices of every federal and state-level elected official in Florida who failed to commit significant resources to address climate change and sea level rise when they had the chance to do so,” he said Wednesday.

Stoddard, who was of course being facetious, spoke during a conference call in which environmental advocates called out the two dozen top officials throughout the U.S. — including three attorneys general and, of course, our own governor, Rick Scott — who openly deny that climate change is real.

Perhaps we should build a tower of failed climate predictions. Or, hey, how about a tower dedicated to those who fear-monger but refuse to give up their own use of fossil fuels and big carbon footprints? Sea rise in Miami is a bit over 2mm a year. The closest long term active tide gauge to Miami is in Key West, which shows just 2.37mm of sea rise a year going back to 1913 (Miami’s gauge ran from 1931-1980). Other Florida gauges track the same. It’s equivalent to .78 feet per 100 years, much less than would be expected during a Holocene warm period.

But, hey, why would anyone expect facts from a cult?

    How about a tower of shame for corrupt politicians who to repaid campaign donors with large green energy projects that threw billions of taxpayer dollars down the toilet.

    Teach those sea level rise measurements over the last 100 years, how does that average compare with say the rise since 2000? Isn’t it true that the RATE OF CHANGE is now increasing? And comparisons should be done over say the last 10 years when we have had all those record breaking high temps

    Third strike this year against Obama and his feckless administration.

    Will there be more?
