Let Them Drink Brine

Signe Wilkinson, 11/3/13:
Everyone living less than four feet above sea level is massively wealthy, because we all know that the rich, who have their choice of living arrangements, prefer to live where they will be regularly flooded.

We can see this globally, as well -- the people living in rice paddies, along flood-prone rivers, and in other low-lying areas are always the richest people around, and the hillsides and mountain-tops are reserved for the poor.
