    Suzanne Goldenberg, 6 July 2016 (The Guardian)

    “…[Donald] Trump currently dismisses climate change as a hoax invented by China, though he has quietly sought to shield real estate investments in Ireland from its effects…But at the Republican presidential contender’s Palm Beach [Mar-a-Lago, the private club that is the prize of Donald Trump’s real estate acquisitions in Florida] and the other properties that bear his name in south Florida, the water is already creeping up bridges and advancing on access roads, lawns and beaches because of sea-level rise, according to a risk analysis prepared [by Coastal Risk Consulting] for the Guardian…In 30 years, the grounds of Mar-a-Lago could be under at least a foot of water for 210 days a year because of tidal flooding along the intra-coastal water way, with the water rising past some of the cottages and bungalows…And the presidential contender’s posturing about climate denial may further alienate the Republican candidate from younger voters and minority voters in this election who see climate change as a gathering danger…Real estate professionals, with perhaps an extra dash of self-interest, hold similar views…” click here for more
