Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
No, because climate change shrinks the available ecological footprint.

And sea walls aren't a viable option for entire continents. Sea level rises create disproportionate economic stress because so much critical infrastructure - never mind so many critical cities - is already in flood-prone areas (q.v. New Orleans and Florida) or in areas where a rise of a metre or less would knock out critical distribution and transport nodes.
