People Are Retreating From Florida Over Global Boiling Or Something

I’ve avoided the “ZOMG, Hurricane Idalia is Proof of climate crisis doom” articles, because, quite frankly, it’s tedious. It’s been done before. It’s complete mule fritters. You know how it goes. But, this is silly shite from three Warmists at CNN

Opinion: The Sunbelt was the retirement destination of choice. That was before climate change

Retiree Jeanne Langan Burris, 61, a resident of Naples, Florida, often starts her daily tennis match at 7 a.m. Even at that early hour, however, she says she sometimes finds herself baking on the court in triple-digit temperatures.

The torrid heat is a far cry from Westport, Connecticut, where Burris and her husband raised their three children. It’s even further removed from Buffalo, New York — a city renowned for blizzards and brutally cold temperatures — where she grew up.

Yeah, who would have thought that Florida would be hot, especially compared to Westport and Buffalo?

Burris still loves life in southwest Florida, where she moved a half-dozen years ago to be nearer her aging parents, but climate change has brought challenges. Naples is said to be one of the US cities most likely to suffer the loss of home and property because of rising sea levels. And because of the intense heat, Burris said, “I change two or three times a day,” she said.

So, future doom, and whining about being summer

Organizations and professionals who help retirees plan their golden years have begun counseling that they toss out the old retirement playbook and consider retiring in places where the effects of global warming have so far been less pronounced. (snip)

Will heat waves like the summer of 2023 scare away older adults from southern retirement destinations over the long haul? Or will retirees continue to flock to places like Florida and Arizona in the hope that the summer 2023 swelter is a fluke — and prioritize other enticements like recreational amenities and a low cost of living? The jury is still out, but we urge older adults to seriously factor climate issues into their relocation plans. Our research shows that Sunbelt heat extremes — a direct consequence of human-induced climate change — are here to stay.

In other words, they have zero proof that people are avoiding Florida (also mentioned are Arizona and Southern California, but, aren’t people escaping the f*ck out of California?) because of climate doom, it’s just some cultists recommending that they not move their.

    OH NOES!! OMG!!

    Probably just a ‘scare piece’ to try and slow the outflow of population from the Northeast. A quick check of US Climate data shows average highs of 93 for July and August, with September coming in at 92 and June with 91. Hardly ‘triple digits’. If this is too warm for Jeanne, maybe she needs to move back to Connecticut where the summer temps are about 10 degrees cooler than Naples and the winter temps can be as much as 30 degrees cooler.
    The rising sea level comment is pure mule fritters.

    Who are their “researchers”, leftist fact checkers from Huffington?

    If global warming is keeping the Yankees out of the south, then that is the best news yet.
