  • Thousands of Acres of Louisiana Wetlands Reclaimed

    Sometimes we should think about the ultimate results of our political prescriptions.
    And, frankly, it has never occured to me that "winning" a debate is important, or that I should be hurt when someone like Airshark or kah, among others (for whom winning a pseudo debate or declaring intellectual superiority over invisible others is obviously very important) ridicule me.

    But now they are pumping that "toxic soup" into that lake and the river, it's going to fuckup a lot of stuff
    Be passionate about what you believe in, or why bother.

      Some snail may lose his habitat.

      Be prepared for the wailing that follows.

        Wetlands are reclaimed by sand. Ask those "born on the bayou" when they think they will be able to return.

          I think it's great.

          They may consider allowing the mississippi to flood again, thereby creating more land.

          Prior to this, remember, new orleans was sinking.

          Also, the outer land area helps buffer against hurricanes.

            Indeed.

            Do you think the loss of wetlands has had an effect on the impact of this storm, and others, and particularly in Mississippi.

            I hear that they were about to triple the casino related building in the Mississippi area.

              How are they going to "allow" it to flood, when we can't even get enough water here to support our corn crop?

                At least 500,000 humans just did. Our capacity for dealing with wailing is probably ready now.
