Why I’m Buying a Home in a Climate Haven

Read the full post on the Lucid Home Blog

In 2019 I got married. Now almost 2 years into our new lives, my partner and I want to start a family and buy a home. With mortgage rates at record lows, this is an unusually good time to buy a house. But as I’ve written about previously, the climate crisis is escalating at a terrifying pace. Sea level rise, inland flooding and wildfires are destroying people’s homes and devastating lives all across the country.

I have a background in climate change policy, and I can’t ignore climate change as I buy a home. That’s why I’m looking for a climate haven, a home that will be safe for decades to come from the various natural disasters and environmental risks that are escalating as a result of climate change. You should too.

Here’s the good news: you don’t have to be rich to find a climate haven. You just need to be well informed. Every homebuyer should consider climate risks, and look for a climate haven.

TLDR: If this sounds interesting, do these two things:

  1. Join the Climate Haven community on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/climatehaven
  2. Follow me and look out for my next post outlining HOW to find a climate haven.
