  • So, with woeful gloarming seemingly unavoidable...

    ...even if we try to do anything about it, and could, it would take a very long time to effect any real change...


    I am wondering if cities like New Orleans, New York, LA, Houston or any low-lying coastal cities/places will be building dikes & walls like Holland.


    And with what money.

    It took a long time to reach our current state. There's no quick fix to get out of it.

    And NOLA, at least, already has dikes. I doubt they'll suffice in the future.
