    •  True (none)
      but the Dutch were forced to reclaim land because, they have an acute land shortage in their country.  We have plenty of land in this country.  Even in the Netherlands until the closing of the Zuidersee in the 60's the country was regularly inundated by massive floods.  Does it make since to make the investment needed to protect a rebuilt New Orleans, when there is plenty of other locations to build that are better suited to house a city?
