President Elect Trump has espoused the view that global warming is a hoax concocted by Chinese interests that was meant to make the United States of America less competitive business wise. According to Trump, there is no scientific evidence that points to the warming of Earth as being caused by human action. Trump has also announced that he will remove the United States from any United Nations actions that attempt to slow global warming. Trump is now set tolead the U.S. into a perilous four years where climate control is imperative according to many environmental scientists.
The full moon of November, which is being categorized as a super moon, has caused high tides in coastal areas of the United States from Florida to New England. Approximately 130 million Americans live in coastal counties. The high tides have been linked to man caused global warming as well as the super moon which caused the tide to rise at a faster rate. Such coastal counties are now considering options for improving their coastal infrastructure to minimize the damage surging waters might do.
"We do see some pretty high tides, even without the full moon," said JB Workman, a golf course employee. Workman moved several years ago into an increasingly flood heavy neighborhood in Georgia. "This past weekend the flooding was like I've never seen during my time here way worse, and dangerous."
