What lies!<quoted text> One day you libtards will wake up to the fact that going into Iraq was the right thing to do. The problem was the terrorists decided to attack us there causing us to stay longer than planned. Better there, however, than in Afghanistan, where fighting them in the hills would have been much worse. Bush decided not to follow the Russians into Afghanistan.

Coastal flood damages are expected to increase significantly during the 21st century as sea levels rise and socioeconomic development increases the number of people and value of assets in the coastal floodplain. Estimates of future damages and adaptation costs are essential for supporting efforts to reduce emissions driving sea-level rise as well as for designing strategies to adapt to increasing coastal flood risk. This paper presents such estimates derived by taking into account a wide range of uncertainties in socioeconomic development, sea-level rise, continental topography data, population data, and adaptation strategies.[pnas]
