Chris Matthews: Miami Will Be Next Atlantis If Climate Change Ignored


Chris Matthews stated on Hardball Tuesday that Miami, a city “perhaps headed to be the greatest city of the Western Hemisphere,” will become a ”lost city” – “an Atlantis” – if lawmakers continue to deny the reality of climate change and take no action to limit carbon emissions.

Matthews explained that Miami’s flat landscape will cause it to become “an underwater city” if sea levels continue to rise. Future generations will look back on “those on the piggy side politically today, those who laugh at climate change, and say ‘they were the ones who did this,’” he said.
