Australia East coast low coincides with a series of king tides to strip 15 m of beach. Backyards 'sinkholes' appear, 1974 emergency works exposed.

Once upon a time there were trees along those shores that held the soil together and replaced sediment loss with their leaves. Then came man and chopped all the trees down. Now the ocean eats the land and man stands and watches wondering why ....

Should never have been allowed to build right on the beach edge in the first place. Councils and state governments take note. There should always be a natural green belt, then a road, then you can start talking about building structures on the other side away from the beach/coast.

Global warming is only part of the much wider issue. Erosion, either by the sea, Rain,,or simply time has been happening since both land mass and sea were first created. As soon as something is made, it is wearing out.

Its interesting that only a relatively short section of the beach does not have rock protection and the old Pittwater Council ( recently departed) would not have done anything anyway should they have taken over that area .

Pacifica Coastal Erosion April 28th, 2018
Last winter’s El Niño storms ate away an unprecedented amount of the West Coast’s beaches – which might provide a glimpse of the future.

A new study published this week in the journal Nature Communications finds that unusually powerful waves during the 2015-2016 El Niño season, combined with a lack of new sediment flushed down onto beaches, thanks to drought-starved coastal rivers, eroded 76 percent more sand than normal from 29 beaches in California, Washington, and Oregon.
