Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
How to convince people to leave homes at serious risk from climate change.

Here's an idea. But beware of the side effects of such programs: investors might buy coastal property with the hope of using it as a beach rental now, and then getting money from the government later.

Florida has been experimenting with one approach that can address the long-term problems while allowing people to stay put: conferring "life rights," coupled with other tools such as tax incentives, for vulnerable properties. For instance, homes might become state property, but residents would be allowed to remain in their homes during their lifetime.
