What type of opportunities present themselves to businesses if the oceans rise by 1 foot in the next 30 to 40 years? People will have to move, dikes must be built, new communities constructed. Businesses will be forced to relocate. New roads, bridges, tunnels and railroads will be built. There will be huge changes.
What happens to other parts of the environment? Rain, drought, wind patterns, the Gulf Stream, snow? Is this bad, or good? It will certainly be bad for many, however it can also be another opportunity.
The book Global Weirdness by Climate Central should be required reading for every American. Big environmental changes are coming. Denying it if you want, but the world is not flat and the Moon is not made of green cheese.
