Leaders hear of insurance woes, other global warming dangers

Decent article appearing in the Ledger.com regarding the Florida Cabinet climate change workshops here. One interesting quote: "The true costs of insurance along the coastlines need to be transparent, not artificially lowered by government subsidies that encourage building in fragile areas." - Tim Wagner, co-chairman of the Climate Change and Global Warming Task Force for the National Association of Insurance Commissioners.

Sunday nite forecast - Apr 1 2007

Wow, it's been awhile since I've forecasted for Miami, but I hope to keep this a regular Sunday nite feature. I don't have the luxury of local knowledge and might not be able to call it good for a particular spot, but I don't think the recipe for good waves in Dade County has changed too much since I left. Unfortunately during that time, the wind models haven't gotten all that much better either. So excuses aside, here's how things are looking.
