Ahh, Miami. The vibrant South Florida city by the sea, full of Tesla cars, beachgoers, and Publix. There are a lot of things that people might miss about the ever-growing city in 30 years, but according to a Reddit Miami thread, some Redditors took a more creative approach to answer this question.
Reddit user u/smiler_g posted a thread 14 hours ago asking the public, "What current things about Miami are people going to be nostalgic for 30 years from now?"
Admittedly it is a bold question to ask. Some people took the question seriously and answered things like the "vibrant coral reefs," and "being able to commute from affordable housing," but the majority of replies were a little more sarcastic-sounding.
u/apn3 came in hot with this comment: "Being able to drive to work instead of boating." It seems pretty clear that this comment is referencing that the city could be underwater in the near future.
u/OldeArrogantBastard was there to back up u/apn3 and chimed in with "Land. Like actual land since it’ll be constantly flooded." And to be fair, Miami does flood fairly often; especially so if the entire city is engulfed by the ocean in 30 years.
Another reply referenced the sea level rising, but took a little different approach; "drinking water; salt water intrusion gonna get us before sea level rise," u/nomercyrule said.
And would the thread really be complete without a comment about traffic and tolls? Of course not.
u/Avenger_ kept it short and sweet, he said Miamians will miss "2 express lanes on the palmetto."
To wrap it up, u/IceColdKilla said "free access to Miami Beach before they install tolls." Ouch.
"The fact that a new species like this could be found in a fragment of endangered forest in the middle of the city underscores the importance of preserving these ecosystems before we lose not only what we know, but also what is still to be discovered," said Frank Ridgley, DVM, Zoo Miami's conservation & veterinary services manager. "Venoms of related species have been found to contain compounds with potential use as pain medications and cancer treatments."
The new species has not been documented anywhere else but the pine rockland fragments around the zoo. Only about 1.5% of the pine rocklands outside Everglades National Park are actually left in Miami-Dade County, leading researchers to believe the species may already be near extinction.
To-go cocktails might have been the only good thing to come out of the COVID-19 pandemic, and it seems like they're here to stay in the state of Florida.
Governor Ron DeSantis ordered that beer, wine, and cocktails could be made to-go in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 back in March of 2020, and he has been a supporter of making it a permanent thing ever since.
