Louis Rosemont called Miami's Little Haiti neighborhood home for almost 40 years. He was part of one of the first waves of immigrants to build the community after fleeing a violent dictatorship in his homeland. But he has recently found himself exiled again priced out of his home by rising rents as climate change rearranges the Miami real estate market.
Little Haiti is a historically low-income neighborhood that sits inland, on land at double the elevation of wealthier neighborhoods along the beachfront. In Miami, a city often considered ground zero for the impacts of climate change, sea level rise and frequent flooding are threatening the homes of more affluent residents near the beach. As a result, well-off families are increasingly opting to move to higher ground, and developers are encroaching on low-income and immigrant communities farther inland to meet the need. That's driving up rents, making the neighborhoods unaffordable to those who've lived there for years.
The phenomenon is known as climate gentrification, and its impact is deeply felt in Miami's immigrant populations. Many, like Louis Rosemont, settled here seeking stability and safety, but are now finding their stability threatened once again.
As more low-income residents move out and wealthier residents move in to areas like this across the country, some community organizations and activists are coming up with initiatives to try to fight it.

“...priced out of his home by rising rents as climate change rearranges the Miami real estate market....”
Each and every day our media demonstrates that they 1) have absolutely never had a hard course in college (journalism, heh), and 2) math and science are their enemies.
I have never come across such unmitigated bull Obama ever on this screed of idiocy.
um.. if the had BOUGHT the home, they would be benefiting from this. But they are too stupid and rented instead so they will have to do what renters always have to do, take what no one else wants.
Climate Change.....now the SEOCND BIGGEST HOAX IN HISTORY!
Another member of the Death Cult aka Millennial.
Summary - the rent goes up as the property becomes more valuable and they can’t afford it.
Increase their skills to offer more value to society? Not interested.
It’s moving time.
And all because of climate change, which we must fight because the climate is perfectly optimized and balanced the way it is now (for the first time in the Earth’s history).
Well, that must mean beachfront property is plummeting in value.
Still room for this fake news among all the coronacrisis hysteria. Gotta keep the climate pot bubbling.
The phenomenon is known as climate gentrification,
appears to be a Florida word.
The biggest lie is that the sea coastline has changed at all because of the volume of water contained in all the connected oceans and seas. Show the proven science measurements that this has taken place. Erosion, land sinking sand bars moving because of tidal effects all project the APPEARANCE of shoreline movement because of ocean volume changes. APPEARANCE that snake oil salesmen jam in your face and shame you if you off a request for REAL scientific proof and not just scientism use of overwhelming and staggering words and phrases.
IIRC didn’t Carl Fisher (who also built the Indy 500 track) oversee the building of Miami Beach, basically via sand dredging?
Im surprised the Democrat media hasnt blamed it yet on the racist coronavirus. Oh well.
Its called gentrification and it has nothing to do within climate change.
Climate gentrification! Hmmm
Theyre gonna die in ten years anyway. Why worry?
If anyone had ever dared to write:
"As more middle-income residents move out and poorer residents move in to areas like this across the country, some community organizations and activists are coming up with initiatives to try to fight it."
They would have been vilified, doxxed, and picketed for "white supremacy".
Earth has been experiencing global climate change for millions of years, but yeah, lets inhibit it.....NOT.
The rhetoric of climate change advocates fast approaching that of flat earthers.......
