Retirees flee Florida as climate
change threatens their financial future

MSN Money, by Rebecca Mordechai

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 3/22/2019 4:26:34 PM

Florida, with its plentiful beaches, warm weather, and lack of a state income tax, is the most popular destination for older adults in the U.S. But some who have lived in the Sunshine State for years are moving in the opposite direction. As damaging storms and other effects of climate change have hit Florida particularly hard in the past few years, some older adults living there have become concerned about their safety and their ability to enjoy retirement. So they’re fleeing this otherwise balmy state. About 52,630 people ages 65 and over left Florida in 2017, versus 48,174 in

Comments:
Example of fake news. There is absolutely no evidence presented showing significant numbers of people are moving elsewhere because they fear climate change - just a handful of global warming fanatics they managed to track down. It´s based on a Hypothesis!

What utter crap!

I left Florida because of the prevalence of anti-2nd Amendment politicians, and the increasing lack of freedom!

My school friend who lived on Sanibel Island gave up on Florida after the last big hurricane (name forgotten) that ripped Sanibel to smithereens. She was also sick of nonstop tropical storm and hurricane warnings, many of which ended up being drills…

Lovely home in a lovely location on the water… Pfffft.

Everyone I know who moved from Florida either moved in with their children or into an assisted living center near their children. Old people tend to get older....

Climate change----that is the most ridiculous reason I have ever heard for moving away from a home you care for and have lived in for years. This is either fake news or participants in the survey have lost too many brain cells from early-bird cocktails.

They moved to Florida when they retire. Buy a home. Enjoy the weather and lifestyle for a while. They get old, and then return to live in a place that’s close to their children. It’s that simple!

1) Retirees are not fleeing Florida
2) There is no evidence of "climate change" effecting unusual weather patterns.

These days literally anyone can write nonsense and if it is off the rails crazy some pathetic media outlet will buy it. I guess ´climate change´ is the reason record numbers of residents are leaving NY state, right Rebecca? Here is a headline. ZERO FL retirees will flee and return to NY, where many of them made the financial nestegg that allowed them to Flee to FL in the first place.

Article does not support headline.

After a big dose of propaganda and couldas and mights they writer cites 3 examples.

The first is a same-sex couple who say they are afraid. Nothing has happened to them but it might.

The second example doesn´t live in Florida but has a rental property there. She doesn´t want to be an absentee landlord so she is selling the rental. Something bad and costly could happen if she didn´t.

The third example, a couple, won´t retire for 30 years but; By Golly when they do retire they will leave Florida.

Maybe, they moved because younger people are looking to impose a state income tax, and other liberal ideas to support an ever growing government.

And, I´ll bet property taxes have been increasing a lot in recent years too, which is actually what will hurt retirees more since they are in fixed incomes.

I live in S. Georgia and work daily in Florida. Im calling Barbara Streisand on this one. Some may be relocating because of hurricanes but no one is leaving because of climate change. And for every senior leaving, six more are moving in. Florida cant build housing or complete new highway construction fast enough to keep up with population growth.

Floridas population increases by several hundred people every day.

Whatever the reason, it is very apparent that real estate supply is up and pricing dropping like a rock between Ft. Lauderdale and Jupiter. My e-mailbox is filled daily with "alerts" of newly listed properties and price cuts, preponderantly in 55-older communities.

One thing evident is that HOA fees, and I suspect high special assessments related to repairs and needs related to the weather there, are hanging over heads that never anticipated these add-on expenses at the rates they now are. It´s not hard to find properties paying $1000 and more MONTHLY in addition to the mortgage.

Toss in the age-restricted nature of so many of these properties and it´s a buyer´s market down there. And watch those add-ons!

Pure lies. There is NO increase in hurricanes in recent decades. In fact, hurricanes hittin gthe US mainland are way, way down in the last decade or so from the first part of the century.

More MMGW lies and propaganda. This lie is woven endlessly into all of the Enemedia´s propaganda output.

Hubby and I moved to FL 16 years ago. Our community was 70,000. Now it´s almost 120,000. Retires are flocking to this area because there are tons of things to do here and it´s great financially for us. We´re not sitting in a Rocking Chair. We have live Bands playing year around at three Squares (usually full of dancers). We have major restaurants, Boccie, Softball and much much more. NOBODY is worried about Climate Change. Miss Rebecca should come here to check things out before writing her articles! Yes, people die, or move at a point in their lives where they need to be by their Support System (family). But they are NOT leaving because of Climate Change. And, if you live by the WATER, you can expect to get hit by a Hurricane every now and then. It´s a risk many are willing to take. I´m not!

Been retired and living in Florida since 2011. Am on the board of a 3000 home planned development so I´m pretty familiar with most of our residents. I haven´t known of one to move back north because of climate change. When they leave, they either a) die or b) move into assisted living, usually up north so they can be near their families. Sounds like this "journalist" interviewed three people -- what a load of ca-ca.

I´ve always had a soft spot for Florida, and Sanibel-Captiva has always appealed to me based on my visits. Twenty years ago, I looked at a property on Captiva Island called Pirate´s Cove. It was the kind of house I´ve always wanted: Beach front, two levels, roof deck, parking underneath. I think they wanted $500,000 for it back then, which was a bit rich for my blood.

Shortly thereafter, one of the hurricanes bisected Captiva Island and turned my almost house into a trench filled with water.

It´s Florida, folks. Swimming pools, movie stars, and the occasional hurricane.

I still love it.

Aw shucks, I was just about finished planning to buy a property down there, now they are saying that hurricanes have found Florida?

I guess I´ll wait until a few more of those retirees flee so I can find a cheaper place on the beach or maybe I will buy a few miles inland and wait for the beach to come to me.

You would get much bigger numbers, Rebecca, if you wrote about the hordes who are leaving the Left Coast due to stupid liberal politics. Thank you though for scaring them away from Florida.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) leads the Democratic presidential field in a new Emerson poll, followed by former Vice President Joe Biden and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg. The survey found that Sanders, who has come in second behind Biden in most polling, is leading with 29 percent. Biden, who has not yet announced a 2020 bid, is in second place with 24 percent, followed by Buttigieg at 9 percent. (Snip) Meanwhile, Kimball said, Biden has lost some support in recent weeks.

A large, flightless bird native to Australia and New Guinea attacked and killed its owner on a farm in Florida, according to authorities. The man, identified by police as 75-year-old Marvin Hajos, raised cassowaries and was injured after falling on a path near their enclosure Friday, according to Alachua County Fire Rescue Deputy Chief Jeff Taylor. Paramedics found Hajos just after 10 a.m. on Friday and transported him to the hospital where he died of his injuries, police said.

I am a lowly lawyer who has never argued before the Supreme Court, and never will. I am not a constitutional scholar, Justice Ginsburg has never heard of me, and I know that in the grand scheme of things, my opinion matters to her very little (and almost certainly not at all). Nevertheless, I hope Justice Ginsburg will forgive my presumptuousness, and will entertain this immodest, yet (I believe) very respectful, sincere, timely, and practical proposal. There is no sense ignoring the herd of elephants stomping around the room, so I’ll just say it: Justice Ginsburg is dying. This is

A redacted version of Mueller´s report is expected within days. In a letter March 24 summarizing Mueller´s findings, U.S. Attorney General William Barr said the special counsel had not found a conspiracy involving President Donald Trump´s campaign and the Russian government. The special counsel also did not make a determination about whether Trump´s actions during the investigation amounted to obstruction. Despite the Washington intrigue

Stacey Abrams, who narrowly lost the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial race and is considering the possibility of running for president or the Senate, said Thursday that she doesn’t think Democrats “have too many candidates” already on the field.

Of course, Clinton went on to not only win the party´s nomination, but serve two terms in the Oval Office. There are currently 18 Democratic candidates in

MEXICO CITY - Mexican authorities said a group of about 350 migrants broke the locks on a gate at the Guatemalan border Friday and forced their way into southern Mexico to join a larger group of migrants trying to make their way toward the United States. The National Immigration Institute did not identify the nationalities of the migrants, but they are usually from Central America.

WASHINGTON — Republican leaders are sharpening and poll-testing lines of attack that portray Democratic policies on health care, the environment and abortion as far outside the norm, in hopes of arming President Trump with hyperbolic sound bites — some of them false — asserting that Democrats would cause long waits for doctors or make killing babies after birth legal. (Snip) Some Democratic strategists said they have been taken aback recently by how successful Mr. Trump and Republicans have been at setting the terms of the debate around liberal policy ideas. And they are encouraging their party to be more

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Three days before teeing off to start his sixth Masters, Jordan Spieth was hanging out in his rental house waiting for Virginia-Texas Tech to tip off. The Golf Channel was replaying his monumental runaway 2015 win, and Spieth took the chance to relive the finest moments of his pro career. “It was the highest of highs I’ve had in this sport,” Spieth said Tuesday. It’s now Thursday; Jordan Spieth is hacking away at Augusta like he’s trying to carve through a bamboo forest; and man, 2015 seems like a long time ago. On an afternoon when the

Democrats continued to rage at President Trump over his income taxes and criticism of Rep. Ilhan Omar.The Democrat-controlled House Ways and Means Committee set a 10-day deadline Saturday for Trump to cough up his tax returns—and threatened legal action if the administration refuses.Rep. Richard E. Neal (D-Mass.), who chairs the committee, told the IRS to produce the documents by April 23. He claimed that Trump’s objections to the demand “lack merit.”Trump lawyer William Consovoy argued last week that the order weaponizes the IRS for partisan purposes.

I am a lowly lawyer who has never argued before the Supreme Court, and never will. I am not a constitutional scholar, Justice Ginsburg has never heard of me, and I know that in the grand scheme of things, my opinion matters to her very little (and almost certainly not at all). Nevertheless, I hope Justice Ginsburg will forgive my presumptuousness, and will entertain this immodest, yet (I believe) very respectful, sincere, timely, and practical proposal. There is no sense ignoring the herd of elephants stomping around the room, so I’ll just say it: Justice Ginsburg is dying. This is

Actor Geoffrey Thorne told Turning Point USA’s communications director Candace Owens that conservatives will “never accept” her, adding “they will never think [of] you as anything but an obedient n****r.” “Without question, it is more difficult today to come out as a conservative than it is to come out as gay. Conservatives today are treated with the same social stigma as gays were in the 80’s,” said Owens in her initial tweet, “Sunday on the #CandaceOwensShow, @robsmithonline and I discuss!!” “they will never accept you.

Pete Buttigieg is the latest star to emerge from Democrats’ 2020 pack, which is no surprise since he exhibits all the tropes we have come to associate with this party in the era of its Trump derangement. On the evidence just of his attacks on Vice President Mike Pence, Buttigieg is a shameless liar, a calculating character assassin and an anti-religious/anti-free speech bigot, motivated by a virulent hatred of his political opponents, especially those who have been good to him like Pence. Buttigieg’s chosen target is one of the most decent human beings in politics, who was supportive of Buttegieg

The $14 billion system of levees and floodwalls built around New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina is already sinking just 11 months after it was completed, experts have said. The Army Corps of Engineers said in an impact study notice earlier this month that the flood control system could loose its intended ability protect against a 100-year flood as soon as 2023. The agency said it it was concerned by ‘weak soils, general subsidence, and the global incidence of sea level rise that will cause levees to require future lifts to sustain performance.’ The Corps of Engineers said it needs to study

PHOENIX— Yousuf Abdelfatah already knows the answer he´ll give about his race on the 2020 census questionnaire will be wrong. He´s an Arab American, but the only race options on the census are white, black, Asian and categories for American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander. Reluctantly, Abdelfatah will mark white. "If you look at me, my skin is darker, I´m visibly not white," said the 22-year-old research assistant. "I´ve lived my life as a person of color, but I´m categorized as white." With the census going to printing presses later this year, Arab Americans are again feeling left
