    When Mortgages Confront Sea Level Rise

    in Environment

    When regularly and then permanently flooded in sea level rise vulnerable areas, homeowners will not want to make a choice between paying their existing mortgage obligations or, alternatively, defaulting and trying to qualify for a new place to live. Bad credit and a judgment against the borrowers would result from a default on the original mortgage commitments, making it almost impossible for the homeowners to qualify for a new loan. 


    To confront this scenario, society needs solutions for the near future. In this podcast, we explore one such opportunity for creative finance which is also environmentally smart. 


    Join sea level rise commentator Mitch Chester for a brief examination of this key issue.

    Disclosing Sea Level Rise In Real Estate Transactions

    in Environment

    As sea level rise ascends as a priority issue for the general population in vulnerable regions, legislatures and real estate professionals need to consider fair and reasonable rising sea notice statutes in residential and even commercial realty transactions.


    If we can warn potential buyers about lead based paint and radon gas, surely we can make them aware of ocean inundation issues. 


    The failure to take on such initiatives on a state-by-state basis can result in litigation, not to mention broken dreams of residential property purchasers and business owners.


    Join host Mitch Chester for a quick examination of Sea Level Rise Disclosure forms.

    Differentiation Strategy: How to Be Recognized in a Sea of Competitors

    in Entrepreneur

    Competition surrounds every entrepreneur and business operator in every industry and in every country around the world. How can we see and be seen in a sea of noisy competitors? How can we re-position our products and/or services - lifting us to a place upon a hill so that our target market can not only see us, but can recognize that we have what it takes to serve them in a way that is second to none? What differentiation strategy must we enact to be recognized in an competitive economy of new product and service entrants, buyer fickleness and confusion, dominant suppliers, impostors, and direct business rivals? That is our focus on this edition of, “The Strategist Radio LIVE."

    Reports of scientific studies and local government initiatives to deal with the challenge of swelling oceans fill the internet and traditional media daily. Technical experts dealing with sea level rise are hard at work in South Florida, California, the Carolinas, New York, Virginia and other vulnerable areas the world over.


    But responsible action on sea level rise issues requires another dimension of planning, for which we have just begun.


    Wall Street has a role to play too, as does your local bank and credit union. You have a personal financial role as well.

    In this episode, we explore some proposed tools and blueprints that financial institutions, consumers and governments should consider to properly plan for the near-term.


    Failure to adapt your financial roadmap today will result in missed options tomorrow.

    Fuel Produced From Oceans To Power Sea Level Rise Adaptation

    in Environment

    An amazing new technology under study by the U.S. Navy could produce boundless energy from salt water. 


    The science is clear...the oceans continue to absorb carbon dioxide, which is one of the reasons the seas are warming and rising each year. 


    Now the offending carbon dioxide can be taken directly from ocean water and turned into certain types of hydrocarbons. That means fuel to energize solutions. 


    How can we harness this new form of fuel, across the globe, to battle some of the adverse effects of rising seas? 


    Salt water intrusion, pushed by sea level rise into freshwater aquifers, is a problem that may have just found a partial and efficient solution. 


    The 2014 U.S. National Climate Assessment, released in July, points out, on page 401, "Sea level rise increases pressure on utilities-such as water an energy- by contaminating potential fresh water supplies with saltwater."


    One proven method of producing drinking water from intruding salt waters is by using desalination plants. While such conversion facilities are getting more efficient, they still take a lot of energy to produce potable water. 


    Significanlty reducing energy consumption demands of desalinzation plants may now be possible. 


    Join Sea Level Rise Radio Host Mitch Chester as we explore how, within 10 years or less, desalination plants and municipal pumping stations may be able to use what is currently carbon neutral military technology to convert sea water into clean energy in the fight against some of the threatening effects of encroaching oceans.

    Your Financial Literacy and Sea Level Rise

    in Environment

    The July 3, 2014 issue of Rolling Stone features an incredibly compelling article by former Vice President Al Gore. Entitled, "The Turning Point," Mr. Gore stresses we will ultimately prevail over climate change...but that irreversible serious damage is taking place.


    Stating there is a climate change "tunnel" and we are "well into it," Mr. Gore urges us to "put a price on climate denial in our politics." He discusses major economic trends in the climate change battle. In this show, we go one step beyond the Rolling Stone article...With regard to rising seas, I discuss how society also needs to put a value on responsible financial preparedness to protect the millions in harm's way as the oceans grow. Call it Sea Level Rise Financial Literacy.


    Join host Mitch Chester for a short, but compelling look at how your level of financial understanding can get you, your family and your community, ready for the consequences of sea level rise.
