Re: “Review: Flood City

If you change the word DAM to LEVEE, the Johnstown Flood and Katrina are the same story.

Re: “Who will pay for coastal restoration?

It looks like the citizen-at-large will pay.

This is happening because our wetlands, our "natural infrastructure" are undervalued. As noted by author Robert Verchick, companies would not be allowed to dismantle bridges for cheap steel, but companies are allowed to dismantle our wetlands. And this is happening all over the world.

Re: “UPDATE: Two oil companies and levee board settle for $50,000

It's my understanding that the goal of the Big Oil Lawsuit was to bring all the oil, gas and pipeline companies "to the table" and come to an agreement. And only a lawsuit could have made that happen.

Re: “Big Oil should settle

Every day that passes, I am prouder for standing immediately in full unqualified support of the lawsuit filed by SLFPA-East against 90 oil, gas and pipeline companies demanding that they fix their damage to Louisiana's life-saving coastal wetlands.

Great piece, Clancy! And thanks for the handy dandy cheat sheet on the Bad Bills.

Re: “Debunking Big Oil’s Big Lie

Au Contraire, citing companies who left BEFORE the lawsuit was filed and claiming they "might have known" a suit was coming actually helps the Pro-suit camp.

If those companies knew of an eminent historic lawsuit, its ludicrous to assert they quietly skedaddled out of town without a peep.

Re: “What's the history of levees in New Orleans?

Thanks Blake for this excellent no-nonsense compact version of the History of New Orleans Levees.
