I think really informing journalism (of America) needs to shine lights on people who are thinking ahead and planning and building stuff for future - and inform ‘the rest’ about those people - that those people are natural and essential part of ‘being human’.
Fighting mud fight while only looking at/reading the reports specifically caters to ‘the rest’ - that occupies, blinding too much of our sight.
America was never built great in that way. In that sense this situation really sucks. College/University, Grad schools and professional journalism - really massively focus on ‘the rest’ - mud slinging - mud fighting - repetition, recycled and over-recycled arguments (I think this is now global phenomenon, and really affecting us in many many major ways.)
And no matter what tried, in that setting and atmosphere - it’s a routine. Only feels like every day is wasted for waiting and waiting numbing, dumb people to catch up on to the perspective.
Futurism/Futurology thinking is separated as something distinctive and treated as if it is not one of the key essence of scientific, technological and modern thinking cliques -
I wonder somewhere in the recent past, some people really intentionally castrated ‘modernity’.
So that many of us would just form the intellectuality which prefers to irresistibly continue to lounge in ‘bullshit’ - than being industrious at heart.
“New York City’s power outage differed in Manhattan because we have an elaborate infrastructure down 10, 15 to 20 stories underground designed 100 years ago without consideration of flooding, because we did not have flooding,” Cuomo said in a telephone interview on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show.”
“In Manhattan, we have tunnels for electricity. We have tunnels for the subway trains. We can’t operate the trains until we pump out the water and we can’t operate the trains until we have electricity.
“I joked with President Obama that we seem to have a 100-year flood every two years, but at this point I don’t believe it is a fluke and it won’t happen again. There is a frequency to these weather events, here and all over the globe. They are happening more frequently and are more intense,” Cuomo said.
“What made Manhattan, Manhattan was its underground infrastructure — it wasn’t affected by the weather — but Manhattan’s greatest asset is now a liability. We have to redesign for this new weather eventuality and it is threatening to many, but that is where we are,” Cuomo said.
“We can argue the cause, if the cause was human behavior or weather patterns, but you can’t argue the water is coming over the banks, because the fact is the subway is flooded and the power is out because the water is coming over the banks. The effect is inarguable.”
