Oil spill fallout: Louisiana wetlands will be washed away
Interesting article from someone who lived in New Orleans (not me):

As a native of New Orleans and someone who lived there for 30 years, I feel compelled to comment on the BP oil spill. The only problem is, I’m not really sure what I want to say about it. So, I’ll start with a couple of quotes from people close to me who still live down there in the Big Easy and see where that takes us.

My father, who is also an economist, was born in New Orleans and has lived there most of his life. Yesterday he sent me the following message:

"Even if the oil leak stopped today, the existing slick will continue to go ashore. Grass and birds and oysters and shrimp will continue to die. When the grass dies, the barrier islands will be washed away, and the wetlands will wash away too. The LA wetlands will be entirely gone by November 2011. In 2012, New Orleans will be destroyed by a hurricane."

He added that last bit about the hurricane because the barrier islands and wetlands are what currently protect New Orleans from taking the full force of a major storm like that. Barrier islands act as “speed bumps”; as hurricanes pass over them, they lose considerable energy. Also, barrier islands absorb incoming wave energy from the Gulf, protecting the interior wetlands from erosion.

Someone else who helps with the cleanup or such down there said it might be years before the full consequences of the oil spill come to light.

there are too many important stories that need pinning...

information overload

God speak to your Children, each and every one, preparing them for Your Appearance.

He plans to reveal Himself in some way, to the world. that is what I am hearing...

and i saw one other person mention the same thing on a thread.. it was the lady who answered the phone at BP public relations when this poster said he called to register a complaint. He said she said the Father is Coming to Show off big time.. blah blah blah

When I read this, it just hit me for the first time WHAT consequences this oil spill might have... and I'm talking for years, maybe decades to come. I had no idea that the LA wetlands and barrier islands were kinda buffer zones against hurricanes. Bye-bye, New Orleans.
