    interestingly,
    "The Pentagon’s widely criticized climate-impact report for 2019 listed Offutt as a base with climate-related vulnerabilities, but only for drought, and said there was no current or potential risk of recurrent flooding. While the report mentioned Tyndall in its text, the base did not appear in the list of at-risk facilities."
    according to

    Because historically there had not been a hurricane that ran up that part of Florida for generations.

    That's true. The Pentagon however was banking in drought.

    Well of course global warming the entire Continental United States was supposed to be either flooded by the ocean or become a desert... yeah but more complicated than that.

    from what I figured, a levee could've been built, but wasn't, so questions are:
    1. how much was it for an unbuilt levee?
    2. how much is it to repair the base?
    3. will the Pentagon build a levee "eventually"?
