  • Train all you want but if you continue to remove vegetation off the coastline,
    your real defense against tsunami, vegetated dunes (stable dunes) will be gone and your training is worthless.

    Vegetated dunes and wetlands also mitigate PH so as to protect the ocean’s benthic zone
    from poisons. No wonder as to the horrific pollution problems on beaches where wannabe
    enviros have stripped the beach of growth. Isn’t it about time Andrea Pickard’s disastrous work
    these past thirty years get assessed? The way she is going our wildlife habitats are scheduled to
    be underwater.
