  •  Well, the great Mississippi did have an influence (3+ / 0-)

    Because of the manmade engineering of the river thwarted the natural processes that built the delta in the first place, the wetlands and the actual land of the delta has been vanishing for decades. So the flooding and storm surge were worse than they would have been without man's helpful tinkering.

    Can the delta and wetlands be brought back(rebuilt?)?  Yes, but it will take radical change and more decades.  There is no fast fix.

    We must never lose it, or sell it, or give it away. We must never let them take it from us.

      NOLAWitch this situation, when I see "fast fix", I think of Rovian fast fixes on republicrony contracts. Rovian fast fixes on painting the needs of citizens as "the dole". Rovian fast fixes on shifting responsibility. Rovian fast fixes on morphing the tragedy of citizens into opportunities for cronies.

      You're right, there is no fast fix to the problems, except the problems of the republicronies.
