As reported by the Center for Climate Integrity early last month, various U.S. coastal communities are expected to pay $416 billion in seawall protection services over the next 20 years. Do you think all 50,000 miles worth of coastal barriers will be successfully installed or will we see the abandonment of waterfront communities?

The coastal barriers will be mostly installed and mostly successful, but there will be poor decision making and construction defects and we will see flood damage. No coastal areas will be abandoned.

I agree with Neil

am I saying yes that the coastal barriers will be installed or yes we will see an abandonment of waterfront communities?

Hello, Erica! Sorry about the confusion, we have since updated the poll answers to clarify.
