LOL. So instead of acknowledging the mistake, you quietly fix the article and delete my post? Classy.

blackpoodles, people have done exactly the test you describe, and found that barriers have no effect.
On Suicide Barrier Gets Green Light

The article says "The feds are trying to secure backup space for the birds in response to the sea-level rise — one to three meters — they forecast will occur by the end of the century because of climate change."
Sea-level rise. Nothing about waves.

waves =/= sea level rise.

Nobody is forecasting a 3 meter sea level rise. The maximum forecast is 2 meters, with the average prediction being less than 1 meter.
Also, weather =/= climate.

LOL. Looks like I guessed right.

My hypothesis is that sevendolphins has mild schizophrenia:
The relevant parts of the diagnosis:
>>"Delusions: False, but strongly held beliefs, which feel entirely real to the sufferer. They can cause the individual to have a greatly exaggerated belief in his or her own importance, power, knowledge, abilities, or identity."<<
>>"Thought Disturbances: Often called muddled thinking by those who experience them, thought disturbances are characterized by an inability to concentrate, to connect thoughts logically, or to think clearly."<<
>>"Risk of Suicide:Families must always be aware that there can be a high risk for suicide in people with schizophrenia. One in 10 people with schizophrenia comit suicide and 4 in 10 attempt to end their lives."<<
This last point would explain sevendolphin's obsession with the barrier.

Forget it Marc, there's no point in trying to convince sevendolphins of anything.
Glasgow published his work in a peer-reviewed journal, and other mental health experts have agreed with his statement that barriers are not proven to save lives. Only a lunatic would argue to the contrary.
I honestly believe sevendolphins has some kind of mental illness.

sevendolphins, the whole point of Glasgow's paper is that NO study has had the "sensitivity" to determine if barriers save lives or not. He tried a different, more sensitive method, and still didn't find anything. Taking his observations and presenting them as a criticism of his work is a special kind of stupid.
As far as checking with outside experts, Glasgow has been recommending that to public officials for years. See the final paragraph of this letter to the Golden Gate Bridge District:
