Losing Louisiana

The fact that Louisiana’s coastline is disappearing faster than a crocodile can snap up its dinner is certain to be ignored for at least two reasons: it is mostly affecting tribes of Native Americans and the coastal erosion is caused by global warming. Randy Newman was right: “Louisiana, they’re trying to wash us away.” “The southern coast of Louisiana in the United States is among the fastest disappearing areas in the world. Rising waters lead to the state losing a land mass equivalent to 30 football fields every day. And as the communities disappear, more and more people are leaving the region.”
