You might have read up on this if anything that contradicted your position didn't send you into convulsions trigglypuff.

From the article:

"But it's not just happening in far-away places like Bangladesh or the Maldives. It's happening right here in the US.

On Tangier Island, Virginia, in the southern Chesapeake Bay, residents are facing the inundation of a place some local families have called home since the 1600s."

That's an island off the Mississippi Delta. They have been coming and going since before homo sapiens was a species.

Tangiers Island is in the Chesapeake Bay, on the Virginia side, nowhere near the Mississippi Delta.

The article talks about two places being drowned by climate change, which you would know if actually reading an article wasn't your kryptonite.

Yep there's ocean drive (hint it's named ocean drive because it's next to the ocean) flooding. Damn it looks like Atlantis.

So, you're saying that the live webcams set up by the Miami Beach Department of Tourism doesn't show any flooding? Well, I must have gotten some bad information about the flooding in Miami Beach then. I guess the photos on and the Miami Herald were just photoshopped.

In iOS 9? No, iOS 8 Music was 'better' in the sense it was considerably more simple to use. iOS 9 music packed on more text, but nothing readable. iOS 10 - not sure about functionality changes, but the text is now chunky and clearly designed to be glanced at, i.e. used on the move, rather than iOS 9's "I am going to sit and admire the beauty of this interface before making a single touch gesture".
