Senior Republican politicians in the state have opposed federal action against global warming, which is making storms like Hurricane Ian more destructive.

This is a blatantly false statement, the reason hurricanes are more destructive is because the population and buildings In hurricane zones have risen dramatically.

Government insurance for this destruction is not helping either.

Why has no one suggested to ban building/rebuilding habitation in coastal areas. If the risk of destruction is higher, and sea level change is going to take it soon anyways, society at large should prevent people from living there.

Because it's not going to happen. Sea levels won't rise like that. The rich want their beach-front properties and need the poor to work to create their extravagant life, so, live locally.

Tell me how much carbon I need to put into the atmosphere to make Category 4 hurricanes strike all the New York Times buildings and I'll do it.

Oh yes, all those times before man was producing large coal fires and hurricanes were destroying this area, global warming. Those hummingbirds wiped out by a hurricane as they crossed from Florida to the Yucatan, thus making that migratory route effectively extinct? Humans, white ones.
