The Possible Affects Of Global Warming
On Coastal Properties

"Throughout history, nature has proven over and over again that things change slowly over time or they can change in an instant. With nature, we are not in control of the on and off switches."
~John M. Roberts~

Forces of nature can make changes to the world over long periods of time or they can make dramatic changes instantly. Either way, humans are not in control nor are we in a position to handle many of the consequences that may follow. This makes the issue of global warming a subject of debate that everyone should become involved in.

If global warming happens the way some scientists and politicians predict, we could see drastic changes in the way we live, where we live, and maybe the very survival of the human race. It paints a dire picture of the future of planet earth and even if you don't believe in global warming, it may still be wise to take certain precautions.

If global warming does take place, as the earth heats up and ocean levels rise, waterfront real estate in places like Florida, New York City, Baltimore, Los Angeles, San Diego, New Orleans, Houston, and the rest of the gulf coast region could find itself in serious trouble.

The affects would be felt, not just along the oceans but also up river in places like St. Louis, Memphis, Philadelphia, Washington, DC, Chicago, Sacramento, Pittsburgh, and other river cities. If the oceans rise, the outflow of water from rivers may cease and the back up could swamp inland areas as well.

It's not just real estate prices that would suffer. A rise in coastal water levels of only a couple of feet or more could affect the lifestyles of people everywhere. Over time, the economic affects would be be felt worldwide and the devastation could be more immense than you could ever imagine.

One of the real affects would be the dislocation of millions of people, not just in cities but in rural areas, too. Millions of acres of farm land, pastures, and ranches would become flooded causing hunger, disease, and many deaths.

This is a worse case scenario, but as the past has proven over and over again, things can change in an instant and the on and off switches are not always in our hands.

Global warming may or may not happen but it is worth the time and effort to study what might happen if it does. Those politicians and businessmen who think they know what the future holds and say that global warming is just a figment of the imagination may be right. But what if they are wrong?
