Even the Corps of Engineers Recognizes the Value of Natural Coastal Features
- "Coastal areas are especially vulnerable to hazards, now and in the future, posed by waves and surges associated with sea level change and coastal storms. There are a variety of approaches that can be used to reduce the risks of these hazards to coastal areas, including natural or nature-based features (e.g., wetlands and dunes), nonstructural interventions (e.g., policies, building codes and emergency response such as early warning and evacuation plans), and structural interventions (e.g., seawalls and breakwaters)." - excerpt from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Responses to Climate Change website.
