Learning To Think Like A Progressive

I heard this conversation earlier on NPR. A flood in Paris which is nine feet lower than one in 1910, is evidence that Paris is going to be destroyed by climate change.

BEARDSLEY: Well, actually, Ari, there was a big flood 18 months ago. And that’s why people are a little bit alarmed. And everyone’s been watching the water rise on this one, saying, will it get as high as the flood in 2016, which came up to 20 feet above normal, the Seine River. They’re predicting that it will stop at around 19 feet and 6 inches. So it’s not going to be as high.The big flood, Ari, was in 1910. The Seine River came up 28 feet. And there’s markers all over the city for it. It – on my street, there’s one. It’s about up to my waist. I can’t even imagine the water coming, you know, all the way up there.

SHAPIRO: Eleanor, we think about cities that might be permanently altered or wiped out by climate change, people often talk about Miami, Mumbai. Should Paris be on that list?

I often think NPR is a continuation of Monty Python’s Flying Circus. Nobody could be as stupid in real life as Ari Shapiro.
