Predictions of rising sea levels due to the melting of the Polar ice caps and the Greenland ice sheet have plenty of science and technology behind them. Not even Donald Trump can deny NASA’s S-D satellite images.

Well, according to an article in Nature Communications, the satellite images were at first misinterpreted, and the expected flooding will be far, far worse than anyone ever expected. Corrections in the new NASA data are now predicting extensive flooding around the World — Southeast Asia, Australia, Florida, and even the UK. 

One of the solutions proposed for the rapidly rising seas and the flooding of low-lying cities is to build massive walls around these cities and population centers.  Perhaps Donald Trump is showing great foresight when he is building a wall at our southern border. Practice makes perfect — for sooner than 2050. He also may be anticipating a large amount of climate-driven migration. Maybe the practice wall he is building will serve two purposes.

One of the mysteries in the Donald’s thinking is why his Southern White House is at Mar-a-Lago, where he often entertains foreign Heads of State.  Mar-a-Lago is on a barrier island at Palm Beach and so vulnerable to flooding that it can go underwater with the next hurricane.  Is his enigmatic nature the reason why he’s President?
