Quotes

..."We studied the effects of dynamic coastal management introduced in two areas in 1995 and in 1999," says Alterra researcher Pieter Slim. "We looked at the way the beach and the dunes developed before and after the introduction of dynamic coastal management. Using data from 1980 to 2010, we analysed all the relevant information, including the development of the position of the toe, the top and the slope of the dune, the sand volume, the shape and width of the beach, the water level, wave height and the like."
"We've discussed this with the governor's office of Recovery and Resiliency and the Department of Environmental Protection, and they all look at me like, 'Whoa! This is a big deal!" said Alan Blumberg, a professor at New Jersey's Stevens Institute of Technology. "Yes, it is a big deal. It can save lives and protect property.""
"We want to understand under what conditions, under what waves, under what tides, these structures are able to withstand the waves or under what conditions they flood and fail" said Gerd Masselink, coastal geomorphology professor
...on to claim the false meme that there is an overwhelming consensus of science agreeing with the global warming theory, making statements such as, " we should not allow a tiny minority of shoddy scientists " and " extreme ideologues to compete with scientific facts."
