"Climate risks haven't yet stopped many homebuyers from moving into areas that don't have enough water, like Phoenix, and places that could eventually be underwater, like coastal Florida," Redfin Chief Economist Daryl Fairweather said."

Weather and affordablilty are still more important than natural disaster risk and climate change risk.

The Obama family purchased a coastal Martha's Vineyard estate a few years back. Apparently they don't really care about climate change either.

I look at it this way; the people who are warning us about climate change are not reducing their standard of living, so why should I?

Last I checked the map, Martha’s Vineyard is off the coast of Massachusetts which is pretty far from Florida and Arizona. No worries about water in MA.

Because they have the wealth and resources to minimize the effects and you probably don't.

Too bad, insurance companies already see the writing on the wall regarding the high danger areas of the US regarding hurricanes and coastal areas. Only wealthy will be able to afford to live in those areas that aren't insurable.

If Obama's place floods he can build a multi million dollar seawall or at worst walk away it doesn't matter. If you take your life savings and build on some barrier island off of Florida and get wiped out do you fare as well? There are areas of the USA I avoid because of disasters these days.

I am looking at places like Georgia and the Carolinas but the tornadoes and floods have become really frequent. I am not Obama I can not afford to be wiped out.
