Stinson Beach Elites Must Abandon Their Homes As Sea Levels Rise

Sea level rise, "an unavoidable result of human-caused climate change",
MAY impact property values in the future.
Not wanting to wait that long California responds by destroying values now.

So...they should immediately file for their property taxes to go to zero because of climate change?

Will the towns' bureaucrats fall for that?

Every earthquake makes the Northern California coast rise.
In 1989 it rose a few inches after the Loma Prieta quake.
Edit/Addendum
Erosion is constant and makes it risky to be too close to the ocean. I have seen it in several places.
1. In Santa Cruz there was a storm in the winter of 1982 which coincided with an extreme high tide (“king tide”)
So, the swell and the tide combined were maybe 30 feet above the usual.
Highway 1 was washing away at Waddell Creek, West Cliff Drive too.They dumped giant rocks to save them. Houses were not so lucky, one washed away at 26th ave.
2. A recent hurricane removed most of Juno Beach and Jupiter Beach in Florida.
They recently rebuilt 2.4 miles of beach buy dredging offshore and pumping sand in steel pipes, it was amazing to see.
3. Every summer I spent in Martha’s Vineyard we would see the erosion caused by winter storms.
They moved lighthouses from time to time to save them.

The Biblical Flood that every culture around the world documented, was an inland occurrence.
They were swamped from inland, not from the rising seas. If the sea level rose, people would have simply went to higher ground, and it would have been a non-event, and never mentioned. Save for places like Doggerland that disappeared under the sea, after the great thaw event was over.

As more water than the Ocean can hold about 30,000 feet max, the excess water is pushed into the earths crust at the ocean floor. That water makes it's way throughout the worlds aquifer systems, mountain streams become gushing torrents, springs become massive lakes, flash floods are quick and violent, rising water is slow and anticlimactic.
Inland floods washing everything away, where as a shoreline moving due to rising waters, would not have destroyed settlements and villages. They simply would have returned when the water subsided. Flooding that came from inland leaves nothing behind as it washes everything out to sea.

Yep, sea levels have been rising for 400 years. But this is "man-made" now 'cause it fits the narrative.

Once again, I recommend "State of Fear" by Michael Crichton

A climate change debunking novel with a 50-page bibliography.

Pacific Ocean is erosive and ever encroaching and I have seen rocks and cliffs crumble in the couple of years I have been in Santa Cruz. Sounds like they are squishing this natural tendency into the planned panic over Global Warming by the usual suspects for this summer, to top off the Covid panic, all for Globalist political purposes.

The family my sister married into for a while has a place in Stinson Beach along the favored strand, low in some dunes. I have been there a few times and it is pretty nice, but a little too foggy/windy/cold, in spite of the expense of the area. It used to be the fashion statement for Pacific Heights dwellers to have a beach house on that Stinson strand to trundle up to whenever.

Everything close to any ocean is extremely vulnerable. Around Santa Cruz, it seems half the oligarch beach mansions around Pleasure Point are currently under reconstruction because they dissolve so quickly from the salt and the elements. There are places on the bluff where they used to have roads that just fell off into the ocean.

This is nothing new, it is just the standard Kommie crap of reconfiguring a natural process as a politically exploitable disaster.

That will come later when they are no longer useful.

A grand house in Pacific Heights or Cow Hollow, a fairly modest beach cottage at Stinson, and a quaint Old Tahoe Lakefront on the
West Shore. Stinson was a breeze to access for week-ends year round and Tahoe for Christmas and Summer. No unseemly crowds at either location. They seemed classy to me somehow, I hated them less than I hate the rich now.

They say this baby, that held more water than all the lakes in the world today, busted loose and emptied out around 6400 BC. You can see it in the terrain of Eastern Oregon I believe.

My sister divorced the family, but, yeah, they had the Pacific Heights mansion, too. The inheriting daughter bought the mansion across the street to dorm her maintenance staffs. Her sister gorked herself with sex, booze, drugs and rock 'n roll, so has a 24 hour nursing attendant. I never heard that they had a place in Tahoe, but used to have a llama farm in Sonoma and a place in Santa Fe for the opera season. They could have had all kinds of places I didn't know about.

The road from SF to Stinson could be scary in places due to curves and cliffs, so I guess a few Pac Heighters bit the dust in car accidents from the day. maybe waving champagne bottles around in the pop top coup while driving off a cliff, LOL!

Some of those Stinson houses really are built on the edge of the water, but I've always thought that if sealevels rise, maybe some homes that have dirt all around them could build a cement wall around their property line. I'm sure water would still leech through the dirt, but maybe at a slow rate that you could address with a 24hr pump. You might only need to do it for a handful of years, as the water could recede.

I know on some islands, the way they've been dealing with rising sea levels is to build walls that stop the sea surge. The water level itself isnt the threat for those homes, its the waves. So building a wall to stop the waves at high tide / storms from washing up to your door works pretty good.

I believe the Grand Canyon was a sinkhole, and not cause by a river eroding down 1 mile deep .

When you live in Florida, everything looks like a sinkhole. Floridans get nosebleeds above 200 feet.
