An excellent review of an unexpected aspect of the accelerating climate disasters in a small and very real community. These are slow moving and dismissible disasters until they permanently disrupt a nearby town, city, or region. We are at that point already.
The political collapse tied to major cultural change has generated distrust and confusion quickly weaponized by opportunists and haters of various types. The shock as climate disasters hit will, I’m afraid, trigger anger particularly from the deniers who have been trained on conspiracies. These people have also been taught to blame the ‘others’ who are ready to steal their security.
This is the exact apposite of what is needed to survive this century with civilization intact.
