I am the only person in this city who knows what the total amount of lost property value (in dollars) would be for planned development in bayside in light of sea level rise. I know exactly how much planned development is going to be worth, and how much the city will loose when it goes under. I’m the only person who knows how the cost of potential adaptation strategies measure up to the value of planned development.
The figures haven’t yet gone to my supervisor which means they haven’t yet gone to the consultants for modeling. The city sure doesn’t have the numbers yet either.
I am enjoying this moment. I might be the master of the universe.
