Dome the coasts

If I owned coastal property, I think I'd want to invest in a hurricane-proof monolithic dome house. One of these. They're green and sustainable. And they can make it through wild fires, hurricanes or tornadoes. For more dome information and discussion, try this forum. If I couldn't afford a dome, I'd go for a non-polluting grass shack.

However, it isn't enough to build safe housing. The coast itself has been drained of the necessary wetlands to protect the inner coast. As everyone waits down the latest hurricane, I wonder if the necessary radical changes to coastal habitation and conservation will ever be addressed. Or will people simply continue to rebuild in the same old ways?
