Will sunken barges save Chesapeake Bay island?

Not likely, despite the claims made in this article. The big, overriding issue here is sea-level rise caused by climate change. Yet, the Virginian-Pilot newspaper article doesn’t even mention that. That’s also an issue at Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, which the article also mentions (in addition to Tangier Island). The refuge’s parking areas behind the dune line are going to be history anyway, regardless of what the Republic congressman does.
