The comment about Turing is,that in my Republican household upbringing,I was exposed to racism,bigotry,anti-semitism,homophobia,etc.,and everyone except W.A.S.P.s were held in contempt just for being on the planet.Physical violence against these groups was a topic for casual conversation.
The point is,the irony,that, it is exactly these marginalized persons who made terrific contributions to mankind,whereas many of my own family,who hated all these people,made very little,if any difference,in bettering the world
You were exposed to the out-group xenophobia that 99.4% of humanity acts out, if not expresses.

There is additional irony in that the Left now embodies those traits today.

Witness "Get woke, eat folk", the BDS movement, Contrapoints being de-personed, and Marianne Williamson realizing that the rabid attacks all come from her side.

Miami was supposed to be under water by now if you lived in the 1990s.

Wouldn't it be a hoot if she is right — but not because the oceans rise but because the land falls?

Port Royal was a hive of scum and villainy just like Miami.

The oceans do rise, so?

A colleague of mine just returned from Venice. He says 90% of all buildings are damaged by recent repetitive flooding; centuries old plaster walls now washed away by the rising seas.

But no, the land may be sinking. Ha ha stupid climate change believers.

The mental gymnastics some go through to avoid the obvious is impressive.

That's what you get for build your city at sea level on top of the sea.
Plus they have been sinking.

At least the Netherlands has a wall so there is a chance the seas can be held back for a little while longer, but eventually the inevitable fate will be realized.
Yet people still live in these places.
Yes, stupid climate change believers indeed.
You say all these things and take no action.

It needs to be against code to rebuild these non-resilient places whenever they get destroyed by a storm.

We know where the land is subsiding; like the southeast coast of the US. They are seeing greater flooding - because of both sea level rise, and land subsiding.

The results are the same - and they are both based on science and data.

The 12 years is for a reasonable chance to avoid massive warming. The timing for Miami is because of flooding.

They are different things.

She is basing things on reality and what we know.
