Amazon's long-term planners who have read a new book on global warming may be already regretting the selection of the two new Amazon headquarters locations in New York and Virginia.
Currently, there are only a few people in intelligence agencies around the world and at the highest levels of climate research who understand that global warming is accelerating at a dangerous, exponential level. Even less understand that we could have 10 feet of sea level rise as early as 2050. This does not even include an additional 3 feet of additional sea level rise that that would occur during king tides and storm surges.
Even fewer individuals understand that corporations and governments have only about 10 years left of relative climate, social, economic and particularly, real estate stability to mass-move and relocate people, critical business infrastructure, military bases and government at or above the 45th parallel north or at or below the 45th parallel south.
Yes, if Amazon was looking beyond the next 10 to 15 years of operating its businesses during the global warming emergency, instead of moving it's two headquarters inside the global warming unsafe zones of New York and Virginia, Amazon could have moved them to much safer cities like Minneapolis, Vancouver Canada, or other US cities near or above the 45th parallel.
