Losing Ground

LA Scenario

 

“Louisiana is drowning, quickly.

In just 80 years, some 2,000 square miles of its coastal landscape have turned to open water, wiping places off maps, bringing the Gulf of Mexico to the back door of New Orleans and posing a lethal threat to an energy and shipping corridor vital to the nation’s economy.  And it’s going to get worse, even quicker.”

It’s worth taking a look at what the future holds for coastal Louisiana, even if it ruins your day.  I try not to think about how different our coast will look in 50 years, but I know it will be drastic – even if we fully implement CPRA’s Master Plan.  It is truly a bleak situation.
