Of course, such happens. Money gets you to live in areas less prone to weather & climate change. The more information there is accessible by rich people, the more able rich people are able to avoid landforms most susceptible to environmental damage.

This is why we need to continue to elect Progressive politicians, whether Democrats or a third party, in order to continue the recovery and ensure social safety nets to protect the people.

We can't risk another economic meltdown which would leave us all poorer, more divided, and less safe. We need to push back against bloated 'defense' budgets and push hard to protect the environment.

There is 'beach front housing'. Then, there is 'BEACH FRONT HOUSING'!

Yeah, the EMT's & firemen, at Breezy Point, got the 'beach fronts' that the rich didn't want. After helping so many people, they came home to find their homes washed away.... as was stated, to the tune of 7% below the average median. But the rich people had very expensive beach fronts which didn't get floated away.
