    'Studies' Indicate Disappearing Beaches. Markets Think Studies Idiotic

    'Studies' Indicate Disappearing Beaches. Markets Think Studies Idiotic

    If the sandy beaches were on the way out, the worlds wealthy, such as The One, Obama, would not be buying mega-mansions on the beach.

    But that’s a digression. The other reason Meyer’s $100 million+ sale is notable is in consideration of continued alarmism on the part of climate scientists and researchers with regard to vanishing shorelines around the world.As USA Today recently reported, a new study from the European Union’s Joint Research Center warns that a global catastrophe looms due to “the near-extinction of almost half of the world’s sandy beaches by the end of the century.” Hmmmm. Really?


    It seems the only individuals who never get the message about the “near-extinction” of beaches are those who actually live at those beaches, along with those who yearn to live at beaches. Stop and think about it.


    Presumably the desirability of Malibu, Laguna, La Jolla, the Hamptons, Martha’s Vineyard, Newport (RI), Ibiza, St. Tropez and other glamorous coastal locales has something to do with these destinations existing essentially on the beach. In other words, land and the housing that sits on said land is quite bit more valuable in Malibu than it is in the San Fernando Valley that is just over the hill from Malibu. Malibu is on or near the beach, while San Fernando Valley is, for lack of a better word, inland.


    Though houses are expensive in parts of the San Fernando Valley, they don't fetch anywhere near the amount that "shacks" in Malibu do. To the halfway awake, the previous sentence is a statement of the obvious. Those of us in possession of passably sound mind understand that property on the beach or near the beach is quite a bit more desirable than cities and towns far from it.


    Crucial is that what’s true in California is true around the world. Housing near the water is almost monolithically dear relative to what’s inland from the water. It’s almost a waste of words to write down what is so obvious.


    Yet it’s worth writing down in consideration of all the alarmism on the part of climate scientists (and those who aim to mimic them), and who claim that so much of the world’s beaches are set to disappear thanks to the theory that is global warming, or the tautology that’s climate change. Don’t you get it readers, “studies” show us that the world’s beaches are set to disappear.


    Ok, but if so, does anyone seriously think Meyer could have fetched so much for his Malibu compound, and does anyone think beach real estate globally would be so eye-wateringly expensive if the world’s beaches were set to disappear? Implicit in this dour, alarmist view is that markets are incredibly dense; that the world’s richest don’t see what climate scientists see all-too-clearly.

    I will post this one more time. I have been hearing this same crap since I was a kid. In 1972 they told me Galveston Island would be gone from erosion due to Ice Caps melting by the year 2000. Scared the crap out of a teen.

    Still there and growing. If you want to have some fun check when the Ice caps started melting. Save you the time 150-200 years ago depending on where you check. New spin? They are melting 10 times faster. So tiring listening to these people lying about these things. I am sure climate is changing like it has forever. Not worried about like the religious fanatics have become.
    The Dem Party has done more to harm this country the last 4 years than Russia. They blame Trump for their fit throwing actions. That is total BS. Shameful.

    Also companies in the business of hazard insurance would care. They put their money where their mouth is.
