Despite the 150-year-old science behind the greenhouse effect, warmist John Van Leer still owns Miami real estate; now he wants to sell it to "a climate-change denier with a lot of money"

Question for John: If you actually believe in the global warming hoax, why'd you buy this real estate?

In a state exposed to hurricanes as well as rising seas, people like John Van Leer, an oceanographer at the University of Miami, worry that one day they will no longer be able to insure—or sell—their houses. “If buyers can’t insure it, they can’t get a mortgage on it. And if they can’t get a mortgage, you can only sell to cash buyers,” Van Leer says. “What I’m looking for is a climate-change denier with a lot of money.”
Good news for Miami-Dade: Property values are increasing - Miami-Dade -
Overall, Miami-Dade’s tax roll grew to $196.61 billion from $190.69 billion last year, according to initial estimates released Friday by Miami-Dade Property Appraiser Carlos Lopez-Cantera.
Real estate property values increased by 2.5 percent. Oceanfront and urban-core properties were most likely to see their values rise, along with residential condominiums.
Jack McCabe, a housing analyst in Deerfield Beach, said he saw property values rise across the board, partly because hedge funds were eager to invest in real estate.

[Overall rating from 12 students:  1.8 on a 5-point quality scale; rated 14th of 15 professors in his department] Doesn't teach the class. Just lectures on pictures and global warming. The only thing that connects the text to his lectures are the pictures. Otherwise he doesn't explain any of the details to you. Just talks and talks. Not helpful.
