Given the present-day rate of global sea-level rise, remaining marshes in the Mississippi Delta are likely to drown, according to a new Tulane University study.

Mississippi River Delta.

The Mississippi Delta is where all the poor blues brothers live in Mississippi.

Well unless the Sabine Lake/Pt Arthur area has risen to keep up with rising sea levels I am not sure what geology has to do with this.

You either have subsidence or you don't. If you don't, then you have a constant which makes it very easy to determine whether or not sea level has risen. Geology, subsidence, etc... is entirely different from sea level rise on a global scale.

Have these people been to delta communities?

Economic collapse is already underway. It will finish it off before anything else...not they they are concerned about that.

So...the sea level hasn't risen, the land has sunk.

Not what we’re talking about. The ignorant journalist doesn’t know the difference between the two places.

Lemme guess...this study was funded by an organization that profits somehow on the global warming hoax.

Marsh Destruction couldn't possibly be due to all the cuts made for pipeline access and Mississippi river diversion, MUST BE GLOBAL WARMING!!!

Maybe you haven't been paying attention, but Louisiana marshes have been receding quickly for the better part of the last century. Why would that suddenly stop happening?

The study used hundreds of sediment cores collected since the early 1990s to examine how marshes responded to a range of rates of sea-level rise during the past 8,500 years.


But climate change put us over the tipping point, it has nothing to do with the other 8400 years or the levees.

As someone who was born and raised for 15 years in the Mississippi River Delta.....if that area collapses, it will be the continued economic collapse. Great place to hunt and fish, but other than that....such a depressing place to be.

re: Tulane study: Miss. Delta in irreversible collapse

What facts are they ignoring?


The fact that upriver levees are robbing the marshes of sediment. The fact that sediment dredged at the ports is dumped in deep water off the coast instead of in shallow water near the shore.

They're saying it's 100% global warming when objective science says this is not a global warming issue.

. Combination of both, I think.

In 1968 my Dad built a dock for me right above the usual high tide mark. He built it this way so could run my aluminum boat onto the dock.

It was not many years before it was constantly underwater.

I have spent the majority of my life in the marshes of Terrebonne,Lafourche,and Jefferson Parish marshes.

I spent my childhood summers either on Isle Deniere ( Last Island ) or Timbalier Island.
My parents lived in Grand Isle for twenty years.

I know a little bit about the marsh as I have been in it for a long time.

It’s going to wash away.

No number of diversion projects will rebuild the coast.

You can’t replicate the Mississippi ( with it’s then heavy sediment load ) sweeping across the southern part of Louisiana for thousands of years.

I can’t be fixed and it’s going to wash away. Truth.
