Seawalls

I noticed a number of folks poking fun at Obama for buying a huge house near the ocean.  They say if he really believed the ocean level was going to rise, the property would soon be under water.  Actually, that’s not true.

The problem can be fixed by a seawall and a good boat.  To be safe from the grater storms caused by climate change, it would likely have to be at least eight feet high.  To be on the safe side, maybe it should be twelve feet.  He would want to make sure he had a good pump and electric generator as it is possible that some water might spill over even a sixteen-foot wall.  Moreover, there would certainly be some seepage under the wall.

All the roads going to and from the home would be underwater.  So, a boat would be needed to go to and from the land.  To be sure, it would have to be able to go a hundred or so miles.

Alternately, he could build a heliport and use a helicopter.  The hitch with that idea is that the vehicle would have to be well protected.  Even now, that part of the country is suseptable to storms.

Truth be told, if the dummycrats really believe that the ocean levels are going to rise, they might want to start building seawalls all along the coast.  Also true of rivers would need seawalls near the ocean.

By the way, this would likely mean building a seawall many miles along the Rio Grande river.  Ultimately, the ocean might divide that part of Mexico from the US.  I might be wrong, but the dummycrats wouldn’t like that.
