Warmists spread fear to Florida home sellers: ‘What I’m looking for is a climate-change denier with a lot of money’

The National Geographic reports:

In a state exposed to hurricanes as well as rising seas, people like John Van Leer, an oceanographer at the University of Miami, worry that one day they will no longer be able to insure—or sell—their houses. “If buyers can’t insure it, they can’t get a mortgage on it.

    So long as the rest of us (via taxes) subsidize building (and re-building) on barrier islands, the foolishness will continue, and the seas don’t need to rise to cause another disaster like Sandy. Truly, it was a man-made disaster, but it had nothing to do with CO2 in the atmosphere.

    And NatGeo used to be decent publication.

    BTW, the NatGeo article starts with Hurricane Sandy mauling islands in the Carribean. They make an all to common event sound unusual
