It's Electric! Climate at White House #2
Updated: Sep 28, 2022
TV host Chief Meteorologist Paul Williams was the Delaware Green Drinks speaker while CNN's Casey Tolan was reporting on Biden's White House #2 which is in danger of Climate change flooding with the lowest elevation in the nation.
With the President, there is no "day at the beach" especially during high-tide. At only 20-feet above sea level, even elevated pilings may not help.
Biden's White House #2 in Rehoboth Beach and only a few steps away from GreenTV H.Q.
And according to CNN's Casey Tolan, "As he’s traveled the country to visit victims of storms, wildfires, and floods, President Joe Biden has returned to a similar theme: Climate change is “everybody’s crisis,” as he declared last year after surveying flooded-out New York homes in the wake of Hurricane Ida.
Biden doesn’t say it explicitly, but that “everybody” includes himself. The President’s vacation home near Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, is in the middle of a flood zone, and an analysis by a climate research group shows that the house is facing “extreme” flooding risk that is expected to get more severe over time.
That means the nation’s homeowner-in-chief is among the millions of Americans who are facing climate-linked danger to their properties – and he has a big personal financial stake in the fight against the climate crisis.
Biden’s multi-million-dollar vacation home, which he has visited nearly a dozen times during his presidency, is in a quiet community tucked between a canal, the wetlands of a state park, and the Atlantic Ocean. Delaware has the lowest average elevation of any state, leaving neighborhoods like his in danger of being swamped during storms."
