Fire island was a beautiful place to go. I found it when I was 19 years old . I'm long past those days and it brakes my heart to see what Sanyo has done GOD help us .

Sorry Sandy

It is vital that we do not close up the inlets formed by SANDY. You must understand that tons of raw sewage have been and continue to be dumped into the channels and bays. If we close the inlets the sewage will not get diluted with ocean water exchange. Think about real estate values of the houses on the bays and south shore coast lines. We must think of the greater good and that is not closing up the inlets for the few on Fire Island....they should not be living there in the first place.....

It seems people never learn that building on fragile & exposed sites are guaranteed failures as money & property trump natural logic

I think that the most important consideration is whether or not they get paid before they leave town.

I am no expert but I don't think rebuilding dunes is going to protect the shoreline from future super storms. Climate change will cause more storms like Sandy. In addition to the storms some scientist are predicting a rise in sea level of up to 18 feet in the next two hundred years or so. Greenland is loosing 100 billion tons of ice per year, CO2 is now 394 ppm and global temperature has risen 1.5 degrees F since 1880. No amount of dunes is going to protect from what is to come. All coastal...

All coastal cities around the world must be preparing for floods, and storm surge on a massive scale. It could probably be prevented and investments to protect the forests, the sea and the atmosphere must be undertaken by all governments concerned.

fford to pay any for the high on the hog excesses of the privileged few that levied exorbitant sums for repairs and necessary services.High insurance or lack of flood as such, taxes, food and transportation slowly but surely hollowed out a hole in our accounts..I have always loved the beauty that the island has offered when not being squeezed wrenched, gauged and exploited by many of its inhabitants.I say that if there are people that want to save their own status and well being as home and business owners on the Fire Island it's up to themselves to pay for rebuilding and bare the brunt for long term erosion prevention and for protection out of their own pockets in the form of higher taxes than for everyone else to pay for it.Fire Island has been around for hundreds of years and will continue to do so if nature permits.If not, then not.In the mean time let those that most profit and reap the benefits from being there foot the bill for it's survival.
