This is the fault of everyone that voted for Pallone - more replenishment this fall

Acting like this is one political party or happening in one state is foolish. Beach replenishment keeps these towns in existence. As sea levels continue to rise, you're only see to see more replenishment, not less. Of course that's not going to stop places like Miami from having water in the streets on every high tide, but it slows things down and keeps those million-dollar residences around to pay taxes. Capitalism and the almighty dollar are always going to win out in the end.

It's got nothing to do with capitalism.Capitalism is all about free markets,.  competition and less government.. Beach replenishment is rooted favoritism cronyism and corruption and big politics

So let's see here......what do you call it when:

 

You get a contract that allows you to bury all the near shore structure destroy the costal eco-system and pump sand unlimitlesly.

The sand being pumped and paid for washes away during every climatic event happening daily.

When the Littoral Current moves the washed away sand and it gathers in a new coastal location only to be dredged away to clear local shipping lanes.

When the same company doing the pumping is also the company doing the dredging and selling that sand to the local concrete block manufactures.

 

So, this is how it works here in NJ...What Do Ya Call It...OMO.

Little to do with sea level rise and lots to do with overdeveloped barrier islands lacking sand to replace the dunes systems as they do naturally.

See my post immediately preceding yours.. seems to fit the definition .. favoritism, cronyism, corruption and big politics.. I stand by my statement that it has nothing to do with capitalism.. closer to organized crime.

NJ "The Mafia State".   And that's got nothing to do with The Sopranos.

Hey guys what are the names of the Politicians down south responsible for this insanity?  sorry getting to this late - thanks

You could google Nj congressmen by county.

 

if you sell a $300,000 house in NJ you pay $3,000 in taxes for selling ur house that go to shore protection. I assume most people don’t realize to they sell there house. It’s a 1% tax on value of house sold. Kind of a hidden tax and only when u sell so most people don’t complain or organize to complain about tax. Makes beach replenishment easier to sell then if everyone paid the tax. 
 

they will always sell beach replenishment by saying the state’s economy depends on shore. 
 

also flood insurance rates did not go up after sandy because of nj politicians along coast. Kept building boom going which keeps replenishment going. We all pay more in homeowners insurance to subsidize those living in flood prone areas. All sucks.
