Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Uhm why is that? The Dutch are the world leader in levee construction. If they have already managed to build 4 metre high levees, they'll manage to build 5 metre high ones as well.

If sea levels do actually rise, it'll be a huge export market for Dutch companies.

I mean, look at a place like Bangladesh. Their problem is not that the country is flat and next to the sea, but that they can't get their shit together. The Dutch have built levees for hundreds of years: it only takes dicipline.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
