Rumours are flying that the owner of a beachfront mansion in Hawaii, which was once used to film the hit TV series “Magnum PI”, is none other than President Obama – the same President who warns us that global warming, and rising sea levels, are a greater danger to the future of America than Islamic terrorism.
According to the Daily Caller;
News reports indicate that President Barack Obama may have just purchased a beachfront home in Hawaii. But isn’t he worried about sea level rise from global warming?
Hawaii’s KTV4 News reports that a man connected to Obama purchased the multi-million dollar beachfront home featured in the show “Magnum P.I.” — the property was then sold to a limited liability corporation in Colorado. But if the House was bought on the president’s behalf, isn’t he worried that rising sea levels will harm his new real estate?
Obama has long warned that sea level rises caused by man-made global warming will make storm surges and flooding worse for coastal communities. In his 2015 State of the Union speech, Obama said “we’ll continue to see rising oceans, longer, hotter heat waves, dangerous droughts and floods.”
According to Fox News, the White House is refusing to confirm or deny whether the President is the new owner of the beachfront mansion in Hawaii.

Former Vice President Al Gore was accused of hypocrisy in 2010, when it was revealed that he purchased a beachfront mansion in Montecito through a front company http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/05/17/photos-al-goree-new-8875_n_579286.html , after years of warning the world about the dangers of climate change.
If the new owner of the seafront mansion is confirmed to be President Obama, the President can expect to face some very difficult questions during the rest of his term, about why he thinks an investment in a seafront mansion is a good idea, given his track record of public statements about the climate and sea level.
Statements like the following, from the President’s State of the Union speech earlier this year.
“The best scientists in the world are all telling us that our activities are changing the climate, and if we do not act forcefully, we’ll continue to see rising oceans, longer, hotter heat waves, dangerous droughts and floods, and massive disruptions that can trigger greater migration, conflict, and hunger around the globe. The Pentagon says that climate change poses immediate risks to our national security. We should act like it.”
