re: Tulane study: Miss. Delta in irreversible collapse
I got fooled by a scary scientifically-cited animation by nola.com, right after Katrina, that projected the erosion of south La. progressing all the way up to the nola westbank by 2020, making Greater New Orleans the frontline of land that would catch the full force future hurricanes, the way Grand Isle catches hell.

re: Tulane study: Miss. Delta in irreversible collapse
The planet changes, always has, always will. Do these folks think that North America wasn't covered by Ice and Seawater at various times in history, which goes for most areas of the earth. Truth is, eventually most life on Earth will get wiped out again from one thing or another that is out of our control (meteor, climate, other catastrophic event, real deadly disease)

All the time you spend trying to get back what's been took from you, more is going out the back door. You can't stop what's comin', they aren't waitin' on you - that's vanity

It’s going to wash away.

I could have told you this from my observations in the 1970 ‘s.

Don’t know about global warming or all that other fancy shite.

Could have told you this before hundreds of millions in engineering studies.

re: Tulane study: Miss. Delta in irreversible collapse

It’s almost there now.

There is really not much marsh left.

The MS delta has been in economic collapse for a very, very long time.

Maybe if people with money gave a crap about it, and weren’t afraid to invest there, the place would be in better shape.

Then they basically combine the two readings and come up with a global average.


Like temperature, how do you get a global average?

Fine. Do all of your studies and fix it without digging into my pocket. Deal?

7.5 ft in 60 years. It's worse than I imagined!

I guess Andrew Yang was right during one of the democrat debates... he said "it was too late to stop climate change...time to run for the hills...start moving people to higher ground."

so it has nothing to do with the fact that we've unnaturally forced the river to be contained within our levees, and everything to do with water getting higher? frick outta here you swedish meatball bitch


Right. No more river shift=no more sediment deposits but that doesn’t fit the “muh earth is burning” narrative.

Memeber when we were losing a "football field" of land every minute since the '80s..? Seems like the GI Tarpon rodeo would be held in Westwego by now huh?

re: Tulane study: Miss. Delta in irreversible collapse

In Port Arthur there is a stepped "seawall" in Sabine Lake by the marina at pleasure island. Wall is probably 4+ miles long. Lots of people crabbing and fishing on these steps. My grandparents have photos of them on these steps back in the 1960s crabbing and fishing with family, etc...

The bottom step is not underwater today. Looks to be about the same height out of the water today as it was 60-70 years ago. 15" to 18" or so. We launch aluminum boats under bridges around the marsh in Sabine Pass that have been in use for 50+ years.

Exactly where is this rising sea level? Are we talking 1/4" and if so, how the hell do they measure that accurately?
. Totally different geology in Sabine Pass Than the Mississippi delta.

Probably Pleistocene Clay instead of alluvial sediment.

So almost 100 years (if current rate holds) to raise a foot
