    the collapse, that's a sure entry for the book ;)

    It occurs to me, reminded that Greenland is 10,000 feet above sea level, some of the 1% may be planning to build an enclave on what becomes available as the ice melts. All those trillions stashed out of the tax man's reach ought to be enough to bring in more soil, etc to survive...

    Which makes me wonder if they, like the 1st European Greenland colony Diamond wrote of, will not survive. Has bubbanomics done a diary today?

    FishOoW, thank you for your dedication and persistence. As many noted above, my reality is our Kos writers go above and beyond the rest of the pack. If there is a good article out there, it is linked to. Often in a source I wouldn't necessarily find.

    In that exceptional group, {{{{{{{{{you}}}}}}}}} are a leader.

      the seed bank in Another Far Northern Place is likely already a target.

        if whatever stocks they already had were damaged. It doesn't look as potentially habitable as Greenland and is far smaller.  

        CT is that many have bought land in SA. I would think Canada and AK. Hard to know if Siberia is worth the trouble of dealing with the Russian mafia yet.

        Some may have several places so they can move with the seasons, or backups if a primary is destroyed...

        After the diary on how much a trillion is, how much a few billion is was even more impressive than I had realized ;)
