There's not law that does what he says, so it's kind of a moot point!

And when it comes down to it, county commissioners, city planners, zoning officials, etc are neither bound by the availability of plans or the lack of plans. If anti-development commissioners are elected, they can vote against expansive development all they want, completely regardless of sea level rise estimates.

FWIW, I would be an anti-development commissioner!

Reference for where the state "bann[ed] any such consideration or planning for the future"? Not to a biased media source with no sources, please.

You're absolutely right. Things are always--necessarily--better when they are centrally decided and mandated. Fireproofing is an excellent example. Thank goodness for codes that required asbestos, Tris, and polybrominated diphenyl ethers. Too bad those contrarians just want to stand in the way of progress.

Talk about a biased article. I am NOT saying I agree entirely with what happened, but the reality is that there was a moratorium on relying on the previous (2010) sea level report which predicted 39 inches of sea level rise. New standards for prediction are to be decided upon by 2016. The new standards do not look past 30 years.

I personally do not believe that any climate predictions we have right now are worth shit 30 years out, so I don't have a problem with this.

The NC coast, being surrounded for the most part by outer banks (as opposed to sea islands) are an interesting case. Erosion has long been a problem, and will continue to be a problem. I dare say a bigger problem than sea level rise.

Oh well, I guess we'll see in thirty years!

I know you're being snarky with the SAN you refer to, but in all seriousness Synology makes some VERY righteous SANs at decent prices. A have a (now discontinued) 1010+, and it rocks. I run a VMWare farm off it's iSCSI system as well as use it for iTunes and other streaming services.

No financial interest, just a happy customer.

Computers can figure out all kinds of problems, except the things in the world that just don't add up.

Working...
