The $14 billion system of levees and
floodwalls built around New Orleans
after Hurricane Katrina is already sinking
less than a year after it was completed

Daily Mail [UK], by Keith Griffith

The $14 billion system of levees and floodwalls built around New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina is already sinking just 11 months after it was completed, experts have said. The Army Corps of Engineers said in an impact study notice earlier this month that the flood control system could loose its intended ability protect against a 100-year flood as soon as 2023. The agency said it it was concerned by ‘weak soils, general subsidence, and the global incidence of sea level rise that will cause levees to require future lifts to sustain performance.’ The Corps of Engineers said it needs to study

Billions of dollars for bad engineering to combat Our Rising Seas, but not one penny to combat floods of economic migrants seeking welfare.

Why worry? The world ends in less than 12 years, or so we’re told by Democrats.

New Orleans is a literally hopeless case. Living in a place which is normally below the level of the river is just not workable in the long run.

In addition to this intractable problem, soon enough, likely in our lifetimes, the Old River Control structure complex (actually several dams, locks and levees) will lose control and the Mississippi will do what it has been trying to do for many decades, switch to the Atchafalaya River bed and leave New Orleans behind.

The Mississippi River is far more powerful than we are, and is relentless, wanting to flow downhill the easiest way. With ever increasing expenditures we can delay it, and with enough money, perhaps for even for another century. But the river will win and bypass New Orleans, as the city sinks into the swamps.

Gee, pouring billion of dollars into the corruption of New Orleans and getting substandard work. Who would have thought it. The levee committee failed to do it’s job before Katrina, why would any thinking person think that there would be any other outcome.

Everything wrong with NO is man caused. In an effort to control annual flooding hundreds of miles of levees, locks and dams were built along the Mississippi and its tributaries. As a result, the annual flooding no longer dumps hundreds of thousands of pounds of silt in what is now farm lands and the Louisiana Delta. Without that soil, the Louisiana delta is shrinking and sinking. By attempting to control all flooding, we have unwittingly made major flooding incidents dramatically worse.

If we were SMART, and we aren´t, New Orleans would be abandoned, the levees blown up and Mother Nature be allowed to restore the delta. Don´t build in a flood plain. If you have to build in a flood plain, elevate your structures above expected flood levels.

So the prekatrina graft money was spent, and the levees still failed. Now the postkatrina graft money must be about out, so its time to find another reason to pour unaccountable money into NO. Until there is some accountability for the katrina failure, why would we pour good money after bad? Maybe we should import a couple of Dutch engineers. They seem to know how to build levees.

The vast flooding of the Midwest, ruining crops, businesses, farmland, deaths of animals and at least one human... was due (in my opinion)to mismanagement and cruel policies of the Army Corps of Engineers & EPA this year and in 2011. I believe it is because they and the UN Agenda 21 want to turn the entire area into wilderness again... with no consideration of all who have homes there.

#30, the city sank, and they "jscked up" the river by containing it in levees. Silt is now deposited in the river bed, so the water rises higher. So, you have to raise the levees. And the bottom of the river fills with more silt, covered by the same depth of river....so the levees are built higher.

All the while, the city is sinking, too.

The inevitable result of a sinking city and a "big muddy" (silt laden) river unable to spread out...

Justice Sotomayor: Hispanics

administration citizenship question

Hispanics have “legitimate fear” of the Trump administration and its quest to query Americans about their citizenship on the 2020 Census, Justice Sonia Sotomayor said Tuesday, as the Supreme Court debated whether President Trump has the power to add the question back in to the decennial count. The government’s lawyer, Solicitor General Noel Francisco, was less than two sentences into his argument when Justice Sotomayor pounced for the first time, keeping up a steady stream of questions suggesting Mr. Trump and his team invented reasons to ask about citizenship, and that Hispanics in particular will refuse to take part, souring

CNN’s string of town halls Monday night lacked questions on the Sri Lanka terror attacks that killed over 300 people, but presidential hopefuls were asked about the voting rights of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. The media watchdog NewsBusters monitored five back-to-back town halls with 2020 candidates without witnessing a single question on Easter Sunday’s anti-Christian terror attacks. The FBI is assisting Sri Lankan authorities with their terror investigation, which has been blamed on an “Islamic fundamentalist group.” “You have said that you believe that people with felony records should be allowed to vote while in prison,”

Netflix series challenged on claim that

A new Netflix documentary series that features disturbing footage of walruses plunging off a cliff to their deaths—a phenomenon attributed by the filmmakers to climate change—has sparked a fact-check backlash by critics questioning whether the animals were actually fleeing polar bears or drones. Leading the pushback is Canadian zoologist Susan Crockford, who said Netflix’s “Our Planet” is misleading the public about the massive gathering of walruses on the rocky beach, known as a haulout, and the footage showing walruses falling from a steep ledge. She blasted claims by series narrator David Attenborough during the episode as “contrived nonsense”
