Completely destroyed? Not likely, plenty of infrastructure there. Roads, sewers, etc. How about those high-rises. Plenty will have to be rebuilt but, it will be. Too much there to leave behind.


At the risk of it happening again and again, is there?

To spend 100billion now or spend ten years spending ten times that. You have to weight it up against it..

Yup. Do you know how much it would cost to build the infrastructure of any given city? LOTS. Happening again? Of course it will happen again, sometime. How old is NOLA? And it just happened now? I'm not saying whether it should or not, logic dictates that it will happen.

Edit to add: Not to meantion the nature of man, we strive to push the envelope with this planet and nothing short of a global Pompey will stop us. It's what we do.

Yes but liberal arts and law school has little to do with actual ecology and more to do with how to complain and file suit.

When I said uneducated, I meant in forestry, conservation, physical geography..ect. Subjects that study the actual environment and not what Sean Penn thinks about it. I guess you all are pretty educated in general so sorry for the misunderstanding.

I agree. Smells like a cattle prod to me.
