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.
