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

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...

A virus appears to be the cause behind a rash of polio-like illnesses that struck Minnesota last fall, causing paralyzing symptoms in several children, including one girl who lost all motor function and remains hospitalized. Researchers from Minnesota and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Thursday that they found Enterovirus-D68 in the spinal fluid of one of six children who suffered acute flaccid myelitis, or AFM.(Snip) “[AFM] is incredibly scary for patients and families,” said Dr. Heidi Moline, the lead author of the report and the University of Minnesota’s chief pediatrics resident. “The fact

Tourists scrambled as a huge brawl broke out in Millennium Park and police say the teens snatched purses and cellphones, and flooded into stores to smash and grab merchandise. Hundreds of police responded, arresting 31 people on charges ranging from mob action to battery—most later released

The cause of the massive blaze that engulfed the iconic Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is under investigation, authorities said Monday as firefighters continued to work to save the world-famous landmark. But some experts said the extensive renovations going on at the historic building could have contributed to the fire. There is a history of churches, synagogues and temples going up in flames while under repair, said Glenn Corbett, an associate professor of fire science at John Jay College in New York. Notre Dame, which was built in the 12th and 13th centuries, has a wooden roof.

While Christians have long challenged Charles Darwin’s theory of undirected evolution, few appreciate the true extent of the challenge beyond the church. Current estimates are that approximately one-third of professional academic biologists who do not believe in intelligent design find Darwin’s theory is inadequate to describe all of the complexity in biology. Ben Stein documented a crackdown within the academy on criticism of Darwin in his 2008 documentary “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.” While this might explain why the public rarely hears of challenges to Neo-Darwinism, the documentary centered on intelligent design.
