I'm interested in the dog dying/watershed aspect.
It's not the 'watershed' or catchment aspect (which essentially doesn't change) that is important but a river's floodplain. Too many people live within the floodplains of rivers and so may expect more frequent flooding and expansive areas of flood-inundated riparian land, if climate change indeed occurs. This can be solved by adapting to climate change and moving people away (in the longer term) from low-lying coastal areas and/or further upslope from river floodplains. Hence, no need for dogs to 'die' in the future...

you mean would could remember the lessons of the last ten thousand years. IE you live on the nearest hill to a floodplain and use the floodplain as agricultural land as its the most fertile land and you dont get your house wet every winter! the ability of mankind to forget the lessons of the past never fails to amaze me

Sure, but it's not just stupidity is it? I wonder how many poverty-stricken residents of New Orleans wouldn't just love to relocate had they money and choices?

If sea level rises are on the way, then the US Army Corps of Engineers has a huge job on its hands to raise and strengthen the artificial levees surrounding low-lying areas of New Orleans. They need to construct the types of dykes that the Dutch use when creating polders and reclaiming land, all of which are below sea level.

Much of the population of The Netherlands and of New Orleans live in areas below sea level, regardless of climate change and possible sea levels changes. They will always rely on engineering solutions and maintenance of existing levees/dykes; however, US Federal funding in the long term might opt for a relocation of people away from the low-lying parts of New Orleans...quite expensive but a solution nonetheless.

Most of the houses that I have seen in New Orleans' poorer suburbs are wooden constructions...so perhaps not too expensive to shift people into new housing areas?

I don't think that is what SS meant by watershed(?) - isn't the issue that the ad was shown before the "watershed" time (9 pm) and contained images and ideas that were inappropriate for kids???

Holy ****, an actual discussion!!
But we can't exactly relocate Bangladesh.
It's not that easy, otherwise they would have done it years ago.

Well, you started it...'tis your thread ! Though we strayed off topic

Bangladesh is such a poor country that is low lying, receives seasonal monsoonal flood waters from both the Ganges and the Brahmaputra iver, and the Ganges-Brahmaputra Delta is both eroding and land-forming (prograding) in different areas. The country doesn't have the financial or construction material resources for river channelisation or dyke construction.

Can only see a reduction in population and translocation of people from low-lying areas to higher ground, else encourage stilt housing within the delta. Though, it is likely that oil will be discovered offshore and exploited in the future to provide the necessary cash flow.

besides people keep parking ****ing great boats on the beaches so they'll be just fine if they dont tear em apart.



on a serious note though i have always wondered why the lack of stilt housing in bangladesh...very curious as i have always thought its a blindingly obvious solution

its my understanding that its all the us corp of engineers fault in the first place, after a severely botched attempt to alter the natural channels in the first place in the 30's.
rivers will go where they want and only an astronomical sum of money being spent continuously can even begin to hope to alter that fact and in the end the river will still win out.
