You often hear of predictions of Climate Change consequences from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and you might even think to yourself that those predictions may not happen in your lifetime, or maybe you don't think an increase of a few millimeters in sea level makes a difference. The truth of the matter is sea level rise is happening now and many islands nations, as well as big cities, are facing the truth as we speak.
Alexandria, Egypt is one of those cities. Frequent floods are not only affecting the lives of the poor, but they are negatively affecting the foundations of some of the oldest buildings and prized archeological sites in the more than 2000-year-old city.
Listen to the episode to find out more details.

No matter how you feel about who is causing climate change, the housing market is aware that sea level rise is playing a part in the price of homes that are along vulnerable costs. Homes that are prone to flooding due to storm activity, increased sea level and low elevation are losing value to their homes every year.
A new study by the First Street Foundation showed homes within 8 states along the East Coast of the US lost more than $14 Billion between the years 2005 and 2017.
Let me know in the Facebook Group if you would buy a home along the coast with this information.
Check out The Deep Dive, where Brooke Tully and I talk more candidly about conservation marketing and how it applies to the Ocean.
