I'm guessing Georgia will take the brunt of it.

Pretty interesting read.

Quote that hit home:
“Dealing with 4 million dead anything is a sizable job”

It reminded me of a biogas installation I heard about in Germany maybe 20 years ago. They decomposed animals and waste and ran a generator from it.  I could not find it on the web, only small home stuff like this:

Somewhere someone would have been happy to get the gas from those chickens.

Such a weird mix of beauty and devastation.   Florida is going to be in for hard times in the foreseeable future. 

Quote
A Quinnipiac poll published in March found that 72 percent of Florida voters are “very concerned” or “somewhat concerned” about climate change, and that 66 percent are “very concerned” or “somewhat concerned” that they or a member of their family “will be personally affected by climate change.”

I don't think enough people get the connection between warmer oceans and the strength of storms.
