35. of course and we won't be able to hold rising waters back

What I mean is we must build up all coastal areas above the flood zones. People have to build for hurricanes and floods. We can't just wall off part of a seawall as it moves the flooding to the sides of a seawall.

Places like the panhandle of Florida and the mississippi river should be wide open water transportation routes. The panhandle between the Gulf and the Atlantic ocean, Mississippi from the Gulf to the NW passage.

The panhandle is going to totally flood over anyway with a major hurricane. The Mississippi is going dry and wants to reverse anyway. Opening these water routes would midagate a lot of coastal storm surge, gives water a place to move.

I would LOVE to take a waterjet from Texas to Canada
