    Soon we will have to redefine rich. Living on the coast won’t be for the rich. The houses will be abandoned as sea levels rise and freakish weather events occur. Insurance companies have already said that they will no longer insure coastal properties from 2020. They are doing more investigation of the impact of climate change than most other industries and taking protective action for themselves. Rich will mean having clean air, flowing water, safety, avoiding extremes of temperature, access to fresh food ie back to the basic of survival. It won’t mean having a view of the ocean, that’s for sure.
