    JOHN, JEFF, and TRENT - Barack Obama amended Executive Order 11988 of May 24, 1977 (Floodplain Management) to require government agencies to take future sea-level rise into account when building federal infrastructure. This was brilliantly logical and necessary to anyone with an understanding of the implications of climate change and sea level rise. Consider, for example, that all U.S. Navy facilities are at risk, and many, like Norfolk, are experiencing negative impacts from sea level rise today. Donald Trump plans to rescind this EO amendment. This is a moronic move for many reasons, including implications on cost and military readiness. Please convince him not to do this! https://qz.com/1054418/trump-executive-order-the-white-house-doesnt-think-sea-level-rise-is-important-to-us-infrastructure/
