When it comes to hazards to artificial development, it's all pretty simple, with or without global climate change: Don't build on the bluffs, high or low, of retreating shorelines. Don't build where king high tides topped by historic storm surge can reach you. Don't build in tsunami zones. Don't build on flood plains or below the highest water mark on a river. Don't build above, on, or below landslides or artificial cuts into natural slopes. Don't build in fault zones. Don't build on fill, especially in fault zones. And the list goes on. But following common sense doesn't make for repeated hyped-up media articles on the same unnecessary problems nor for satisfying humankind's preference for fighting nature rather than living sustainably with it and as a part of it.
