California Governor Jerry Brown released his state budget earlier this week and had some strong warnings about future cost impacts due to the effects of global warming.
According to some scientists, over the next couple of hundred years, sea levels could rise up to four feet and that will affect the airports in Los Angeles and San Francisco, as well as the nuclear plant in San Onofre.

Excuse for land grabbing. Liberals are insane.
Wouldn’t it be cheaper just to buy some pontoons for the planes?
He should be in a straitjacket.
Let the Chinese worry about that when they are running CA. It is certain CA won’t last 200 years under its present management.
I guess they walked it back some since LAX has a mean elevation of around 125’ above sea level. Maybe in, oh say, 40,000 years at current rise rates.
Then start diggin, boy.
That’s why the Spruce Goose was built. So that LAX could remain open even after the oceans rose. Howard Hughes - patriot and visionary.
Global warming will wipe out LAX airport??? Holy toledo, we better panic now.
What makes him think we will still need airports in another century. A century ago no one had any idea of air travel on the scale we have now.
Yep. Ocean front property land grab to develop.
LAX runways and tower are 125 feet above the sea level. And about 3000 feet back from the beach.
Hard to see what impact a 4 foot rise would have ... and that “potential” sea level rise “might” occur in 400 to 900 years. IF the West Antarctic Ice shelf melts at all! Last year in October, the sea ice surrounding that West Antarctic ice shelf set an all-time record high! (Just the “excess” antarctic sea ice on May8 was 97% the size of Greenland!)
So, raise the sales tax rate to 15% right now, even though "up to" includes the number zero, and nothing may happen.
Who's to say that we will still be using airports in two hundred years, anyway?
No. They are perfectly sane and know what they are doing. Stealing.
Because to idiot environmentalists, everything from climate to virtually all natural conditions MUST remaining static and unchanged.
Have at it Kalifornia. Why not just shut it down and insist the only way into Kalifornia is via high speed rail, which as a state you seem to be ecstatic over.
Jerry Brown, go do a big bong hit and go to bed!
