    It sounds weird when you refer to cities as 'her' 🤔 Couldn't you just say 'the city's' or something?

    The story of Katrina flooding is wrong. The water went into the lake and the levees that are on canals to the lake failed, not the lake levee. It also wasn't because they were overtopped, some failed deep underwater where the soil gave way underneath the levee, and one got hit by a runaway barge.

    I like the video - very thoroughly researched - but you need to tone down the rhetoric about climate change. Only if you look short term - a five year period from 2016-2020 - are the number of hurricanes abnormally high. If we only have - say - 10-12 hurricanes in 2020, this would be a return to normal numbers. A five year blip is statistically less than meaningless and when looked at in historical terms is LAUGHABLY meaningless. Since we do not have accurate weather data prior to the 1870's or so, we have no idea how many hurricanes the American SE typically saw historically. For all we know, this area used to have 30-40 hurricanes a year in the 1500-1600's - which is why it was so sparsely populated pre-European colonization. The point is we don't know and making half-baked, over generalizations isn't good science.

    Mankind cannot stop climate change. Mankind cannot control the weather. If New Orelans is going to drown, mankind can do nothing about it.

    The people finding that area must have thought, "This is a perfect location for a town"The people developing the area into what it became "This is the perfect location to make a lot of money" The reality? Living at water comes at a price...

    The sediment in the Mississippi could also build up on the riverbed, pushing the water level of the river up without funding for dredging.

    Wouldn't it be better to allow the Mississippi to change its course now then dredge the former route to allow access to the sea ? At worst it would give some protection to the city at best it could allow for better drainage systems to be put in place. And the whole no freshwater thing is a laugh as you do know in Australia over a century ago the built a pipeline to deliver fresh water over 530 kilometres (330 mi) and with the increased technology since then I'm sure a city like new Orleans would be able to archive it.

    Spending more money to try and rescue it is just throwing good money after bad. Close it down now and cut the losses, and for Pete's sake let the Mississippi run free so that the coastline can be repaired.

    Seems kinda smart to just limit development in new Orleans and settle a new location up river. Rename NO as South New Orleans or just Old town idk. Resettle people outside the downtown in new development up river to create a new development and bulldoze the old neighborhoods. Prob cheaper than prolongning the inevitable with stopping up the rivers and lake.

    Genuinely wondering how people can live their whole lives in cities that get slammed constantly with floods, hurricanes, earthquakes... I'd be so stressed all the time

    They should be building everything on stilts and slowly converting the rest of the city so that it also sits just above sealevel. That way when it does eventually flood. All you have to do is swap out your car for a boat and now you're living in venes

    Every year, this area needs significant taxpayer support. It’s ridiculous, and will only get worse.

    Wondering if there is some way to get water from the Mississippi to areas with water shortages?How about :*Build higher*Higher stronger levee walls*Build the land up higher than sea level whenever possible Otherwise, look for high ground and get out of harms way Thank you
