Very interesting read, thanks! Surprised though they didn't mention communities like Seaside and Rosemary that restricted building to behind the dunes and as a result have sustained little hurricane damage. Of course if sea levels do rise as predicted, even those dunes won't be enough. Really hoping that doesn't happen.
They should just blacklist the entire Florida coast, and remove the risk to the taxpayer.
I love that this engineer is bragging about his contacts as a way of circumventing the DEP. How much longer are we (the citizens of Florida) going to let guys like this determine our insurance rates?? We all know that every time one of "engineered dunes" fails, that all of our rates go up.
I really kind of hope the no restoration folks win, it'll be real easy to tell them to shut up when their houses fall in the gulf.
As far as sea level rise, New York and Miami will be under water before we are.
good point jodifl---our high insurance rates essentially subsidize beachfront houses.
Which is why I can only laugh when the anti-renourishment crowd starts yelling socialism.
Yep--when they need government they are quick to scream for a bail out
How do you get around regulations? Just ask Jay Odom of Odom's Curve fame.
