Its a vast, Multi-Generational Real Estate Ploy! Trump’s Victory Finally Makes Sense…!

A new study today finally reveals the brilliant, devious, multi-generational plan behind Trump.  Those Trump voters aren’t reactionaries.  They (and Trump) are Real Estate geniuses playing the long game….

The findings in the journal Science show that ocean surface temperatures during the Earth’s last warm period, some 125,000 years ago, were remarkably similar to today.  But what concerns scientists is that sea level back then was 20-30 feet (six to nine meters) above what it is today.”

A 20-30 foot increase would put huge swathes of the US coast underwater.  An epic disaster?  Sure for those coastal elites.  But is a “yuge” opportunity for Trump and his inland voters. Thousands of miles of soon-to-be beachfront property!  Right in the heart of Trump country!  Just vote to halt every climate change initiative and wait for the waves (and money) to come rolling in…

In a generation or two, the Atlantic ocean will be lapping up on the newly created shores and newly enriched inhabitants of Appalachian Coal country.  The poorer, Western half of Connecticut will be the new Hamptons.  The newly impoverished coastal snobs will be bidding up house prices deep inland.  The Trump voter’s descendants will just laugh all the way to the bank.

The Western half of the country is more problematic.  Those coastal mountains will get in the way.  California’s “Trump country” Central Valley could revert back to an inland sea.  But everyone can’t be a winner.   And most Trump voters just want California to slide into the sea anyway…

The 1% will just roll ahead of the problem.  Probably arranging a spectacular, early bailout for their former beachfront mansions (smoke-screened by heart-tugging anecdotes of struggling Maine lobstermen and the African American Gullahs of the Carolinas).  Having abandoned the beaches, they’ll leave the rest of coastal America to its fate.  Abandonment seems to be what the 1% does best these days.  A perverted inverse of Churchill’s famous quote…

“We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.”

So for the rest of us (the top 10%-20% minus that all-important 1%)?  Start scouting Real Estate inland.  Contrary to the popular saying, they are making more beachfront property.  Although its going to be tricky to figure out that shoreline.  Especially if we de-fund the climate modeling efforts that might help delineate it.  Maybe just settle for someplace nice in the mountains…  🙂

Been a long radio silence here.  Party just driven by life – great honeymoon to Nepal and Sri Lanka followed by (gasp) actually moving in together.  Also driven re-calibrating, re-thinking my outlook post-Trump.  If you don’t have something intelligent to say, don’t say anything at all etc. etc.  I’ll be back to posting though.  Its going to be an interesting year!
