I spent a good part of my childhood at West Point, the US Military Academy. I got an email yesterday with photos of the flooding at West Point.
My dad and brother used to work in that grey stone building called Mahan Hall.
And the same storms that did this to West Point did worse to many parts of New England, particularly Vermont.
Flooding is a great example of that. As the earth warms, storms are capable of carrying a lot more water and dumping it quickly. West Point took ten inches of rain in a few hours.
Flood and water management will be critical in adapting to the climate crisis and, unfortunately, is going to be a big business.
