If the federal government offered to give you free money to paint your house, would you accept the offer? We've had storm surge since the beginning of time... Just part of Florida living. Only thing that's changed, is more democrats moving to Florida, fleeing Yankee tyranny in their ' blue' states. Unfortunately, using the money offered, to accommodate their delicate needs, will just encourage more refugees, and the further bluing of our great state. We have sea walls over a hundred years old, that still do the job. You'll notice that a lot of these democrats, are also wanting to build beachfront homes, or very close to the coast, where they are concerned they might have problems with storm surge.

The jolly old Arabs in Dubia built a huge palm tree resort in their ocean and did not claim it was because of C/C they just did it for tourists

There is nothing Florida can do to hold beck the ocean as Florida is already actually allowing the Everglades to re flood as the water is beneficial to the ecosystem

That was kind of extravagant. I wonder if they underwater berm they built is still suitable for its purpose. It was basically to prevent erosion of their luxury resort.

It's to limit the effects of storm surges. I just wonder why only Miami-Dade county.

They would have to build a seawall above every beach, its not impossible but it would turn tourist away from the beaches

When I lived in Jacksonville, sometimes you could watch the boats dredging the seafloor to build the beach back up. This is where if they dredged a little further out then an under water berm would slow the incoming and outgoing tide.
That'd be shifting the money already being spent to maintain Florida's coastline.

The Everglades is a creepy swamp filled with fresh water, not salt water.
Most folks that live in Florida drive through this thing as fast as they can.

Generally only people that don't live in Florida are the ones wanting to save this thing.

Because Miami-Dade county contains a city, Miami, filled with idiots.

Nothing slows the tide.

Nope. A tide comes at the same time just the same.

It doesn't. New Orleans is below sea level. It can't keep the water out no matter what wall they build.

Passing storms just fill it up like a saucepan. The only way to get rid of it is to PUMP the water out.

If the pumps fail, New Orleans is going to be flooded, and no seawall will stop that.

Because Miami-Dade's sea level is lower than most of the rest of the world's ocean.

No sense of adventure... Where else on America can you see 16 foot pythons in the wild, or any of growing number of exotic, invasive species? They have some lizards, from 4-6 feet long, suppose to run real fast too. Fortunately, they don't go after anything they can't fit in their mouth. Least with alligators, you usually need to be near water... It only gets creepy, when it suddenly gets quiet.

Didn't that cold spell in January where Miami didn't get above 50º F. hurt invasive species in south Florida?
From the Tampa Bay Tribune; Even as parts of Florida brace for record low temperatures, it likely won't be cold enough for long enough to kill large numbers of one of the state's most troublesome invasive species, the Burmese python.

It's got to go below freezing, a hard freeze, that lasts more than a few hours. Haven't had one in Central Florida in over a decade.

You think reptiles instantly die, if the temperature drops below 70 F? Their metabolism slows down, and they can survive quite a while when it gets cold. You have snow in Kentucky, and you also have snakes and lizards. Do you think they migrate to Florida every winter, like the democrats they resemble?
