Losing Louisiana

Despite American climate change deniers, Louisiana’s coastline is one the fastest disappearing in the world due to rising sea levels.

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.”
