It appears landfill is a lot more of a problem than rising sea-level. But, but, the global warming consensus!

Some areas are sinking at rates of nearly half an inch (10mm) a year while seas are rising at 0.12 inches (3mm) per year and accelerating.

Actually per NOAA the sea-level rise in Redwood City (along the bay south of SF) the relative sea level trend is 1.99 mm/year (0.07834646 inches/year) with a 95% confidence interval of +/- 1.71 mm/year (0.06732283 inches/yr) based on monthly mean sea level data from 1974 to 2016, which is equivalent to a change of 0.65 feet in 100 years.

This is how it works all over the country.

Areas that should not be developed are anyway because of the many industries that rely upon it, including banks, lawyers, gov (taxes), etc., not just real estate agents and laborers.

Everybody in on it gets paid and the can is kicked down the road.

It's like industrial pollution.

The well-off are gone before it becomes a problem for them.

Meanwhile, the well-off get to enjoy it.

It would take complete devastation, the land mass gone, before the gravy train stops.
