Why did John Edwards build his mansion on a NC coastal lowland?

Sea levels are rising; latest I’ve seen is we’re committed to a five foot rise. Plus violent storms on the Atlantic seaboard.

I don’t know the exact elevation of Edwards’ huge, huge mansion, but looking at the topos of Figure 8 Island (google map Bayshore NC and go southeast, or go to Topozone) I don’t see how it could be much more than 5 feet above sea level.

The implication: he doesn’t believe in global warming, or didn’t when he bought the land.
The upside: he’ll fight warming tooth and nail.
