The anti-climate policies embraced by President-elect Donald Trump— coupled with the ever-more stunning news and analyses that keep coming about the polar regions — means trillion-dollar economic impacts from climate change are closer at hand than people realize. Here’s why.
Everyone who’s paying attention to polar regions ice melt, warming seas, and overall temperature rises knows that shore property values are a high risk. This can be seen in various only real estate sites or mobile apps where previously completely unaffordable shore properties are starting to become affordable! But it isn’t just the shoreline that’s a risk. Flooding around rivers, tributaries, spring fed lakes, etc are all a possibility. This is going to happen much faster than the normally conservative scientists are predicting. It won’t be long before flood insurance, even for the ultra rich, is simply unavailable.
