Well, I suppose when the disaster hits the initial response is to find relief, healthcare, get the government involved for the recovery and restoration and try to restore the life standards prevalent before the hurricane... the Global Warming or Climate Change debates and discussions probably will wait until an election or will be pursued after a scientifically proven new evidence forces people for more awareness.
And of course, Florida is a beautiful peninsula which enjoys more of a leisure resort kind of lifestyle; Global Warming may not be their priority at all, while maybe it actually should be... Living there is accepting the rules of the region: a hurricane/cyclone/flood-prone region..
Good coverage. Thanks for sharing,
