It is not too late as yet. ;)

John Englander uses the bully pulpit of the Royal Institution to scare all coastal dwellers shitless.



Run for the hills. :lol:

Quote:
In 2014, the CDC found that an 11-year-old black child is 10 times more likely to drown than a white child the same age. The notion that "black people can't swim” may sound like a stereotype, but it's a real disparity and it's rooted in a history of discriminatory access to swimming pools.


When I was a kid, we assembled at the lagoon and learned how to do this thing.

Perhaps there is reason for that: Keeping black people away from white swimming pools is an American tradition.

But now I start to understand the rationale behind the climate change denialism.
