Hawaii. Doesn’t that water look enticing?
It may not happen in my lifetime, but scientists predict that global warming will result in rising sea levels and that the present shoreline in Hawaii will disappear under water.
Imagine the hotels in Waikiki being accessible only by boat rather than by car. Will Waikiki look like Venice, then?
I wonder if it is wise for us to build President Obama’s Library on the shores of Kakaako in Honolulu, one of three places mentioned as a site for the library. The other two sites mentioned are Chicago and New York City. Chicago might be a better location, as it is inland and won’t be subject to rising sea levels.
Perhaps, you don’t care.
After all, nothing seems permanent. We are mere specks in the universe.
When the Earth is no longer inhabitable, humans will probably be residing elsewhere in the solar system. Will the moon be colonized? Or Mars? Or some other new frontier?
I wish I could be around when that happens.
