From the article:

The Obama administration told officials in a statement last Friday that no additional money would be allocated to help these refugees.
//////////

What is this?

Even tho late & meager, Hurricane Katrina victims were promised & did get some hurricane relief....... as did Hurricane Sandy victims.

However, in universal response of the euro & transplanted euro culture, Native Tribes are on their own, & hung out to dry(more accurately, flounder in the waves).

Again........from the article:

The Obama administration told officials in a statement last Friday that no additional money would be allocated to help these refugees.
//////////
Such a declarative clear statement!

Might this be an administrative float, to placate conservative re-pubic-lick-uns..... & to see if the general american public(non-Native Tribal) won't raise a cry against the abandonment of american citizens(tho they be distant & of Native Tribal origins)?

Yes, this could be signaling a fundamental clarification of future inactivity to protect americans (generally) from AGW.

Unscientific & educationless toxic topix AGW denier conservative re-pubic-lick-uns would approve of such.......... american inaction, NOT on behalf of americans....... as libertarians also would agree.

"snuck its peter" points out it sees colors but cannot understand their meaning.

The map means nothing. Again, what's the point?

And 10,000 years ago I had an ice chunk the size of North Dakota in my front yard. I guess history means nothing either, eh?
