Yeah, we're going to see reported a continuous string of:

1.  How bad it is.
2.  How bad it will be.
3.  How we're not meeting the requirements to stop it.
4.  How we need more meetings to talk about it.
5.  More agreements, to be followed by not meeting the promised actions.

Reality does not care.

Don't forget "how we need to expand government regulation/control," which is what most of it is about.  Meanwhile, there are actual researchers trying to put a finger on the problem and spitball potential solutions.  Nobody cares what they have to say, tho.

I absolutely love those commercials from the Beef Council, brilliant marketing.  It doesn't hurt that Aaron Copland knew how to write a tune.

Delaware's average altitude is about 60 feet above sea level, which is the lowest average of any state.
I'd argue that my county is larger than Deleware, and nowhere in my county is above 60 ft. I'd wager most of my county is 30-40 ft, some may be as high as 40-50 ft, and there is a lot of marshland and beach front that is about ~2-5 ft MSL.

This was good for the most part. Idalia hurt Florida really bad though.

2023 hurricane season ends after delivering storms Harold, Idalia and Ophelia amid a strengthening El Niño | CNN

All a matter of cherry picking.

The 2023 Atlantic hurricane season ends on Thursday as one of the busiest on record, with a twist: Most of its storms veered into the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
But with El Niño expected to end next year and global temperatures on the rise, forecasters say there’s “high potential” for an even more active hurricane season in 2024 and uncertainty around what that could mean for the United States.
[color=var(--theme-paragraph__link-color)]Record-high ocean temperatures[/iurl] this season ushered in above-average tropical activity and neutralized the effectiveness of a strengthening [color=var(--theme-paragraph__link-color)]El Niño[/color], which typically inhibits storm development in the Atlantic by ripping them apart with hostile upper level winds.[/font][/size][/color]

We were pretty down on rainfall this year. My area was about 6" shy of normal.

Other areas, like Naples, were 24" down! That's huge.

Starting to see more and more articles like these:

Water restrictions beginning in the City of Sanibel (winknews.com)

Water shortage declared in portions of Cape Coral and unincorporated portions of Lee County (winknews.com)

Allowing shale fracking in upstate New York might have mitigated the gas supply shortage at the margin, but former Andrew Cuomo blocked that. The climate lobby’s antidote is electric heat pumps, but that would have increased strain on an already stressed grid. If New York City relied mostly on electricity for heat, millions could have lost both power and heat during the arctic blast. How’s that for a zombie apocalypse?

The New York Independent System Operator reported this week that the Empire State would need to rely on power plants that can switch to burning oil during the winter into the next decade owing to gas shortages and lulls in offshore wind. Another problem: “EV charging load is higher on colder days due to reduced battery efficiency and reduced EV range in cold temperature.”
You’d think all this would be news given the growing risks of grid failure, but such talk is taboo among those who want the U.S. economy to run solely on electricity driven by wind and solar energy. Don’t say New Yorkers weren’t warned.

Amidst a "conversation" with some lady on line who insists we have to "DO SOMETHING" and quit using fossil fuels.  I guess I poked about about having a plan and she went quasi-ballistic on me saying I didn't want to DO anything.
