And you STILL won't read what I actually write, and persist in arguing something different.

Your assertion here was the start of the argument:

Macdoc wrote:
Should some of the low areas in England be abandoned instead of defended ( same thing with post hurricane Sandy - should some areas be written off).


Sandy isn't a good example - unless you think that NYC should be abandoned, along with much of NJ - the damage there was to major city infrastructure including the subways from a very large storm which stagnated. Again, there are many better places to focus hurricane prep towards than to the places which are only relatively rarely affected at all.

Massively destructive tornado in Mississippi:

We get tornadoes in Western NY State every couple years - guess with global warming and I'd better put in a tornado shelter - at least according to the logic you display above, Macdoc.

You know what? Never mind. Ignore what I said. This is apparently just another echo of your own private domain - you can have it; life is too short to continue wasting it arguing with people.

Brings to mind that moron Dinesh D’Souza’s moronic comment “If climate change is real then why did Obama buy waterfront property?”

Florida Sees Signals of a Climate-Driven Housing Crisis - The New York Times
If rising seas cause America’s coastal housing market to dive — or, as many economists warn, when — the beginning might look a little like what’s happening in the tiny town of Bal Harbour, a glittering community on the northernmost tip of Miami Beach.

With single-family homes selling for an average of $3.6 million, Bal Harbour epitomizes high-end Florida waterfront property. But around 2013, something started to change: The annual number of homes sales began to drop — tumbling by half by 2018 — a sign that fewer people wanted to buy.

Prices eventually followed, falling 7.6 percent from 2016 to 2020, according to data from Zillow, the real estate data company.

All across Florida’s low-lying areas, it’s a similar story, according to research published Monday. The authors argue that not only is climate change eroding one of the most vibrant real estate markets in the country, it has quietly been doing so for nearly a decade.
