However, many SSP posters seem to think that the current shorelines should remain in place forever. That's why we read posts of building sea wall defense for New York on this site.
Actually, now that we have a Manhattan built there, yes, we're going to want to keep that shoreline there forever from now on.

Similarly, the natural state of affairs in the PNW is that a megaquake knocks everything down every few hundred years; now though, we might want to look into ways to defuse them, as we've built cities there in the meantime.

Not everything natural is always automatically good. Sometimes artificial is better
