This is an important change in the course of history, and we must help give this new information some “legs.”
But time is of the essence.
Please go to YouTube and watch our new 3-minute video about why all of us must resist saying that “Katrina flooded New Orleans.”
As author John McQuaid, author of Path of Destruction notes, using Katrina ‘shorthand’ is confusing because of its underlying associations of “natural disaster swamps city below sea level – what the heck are those people doing living down there?”

levees.org catches the u.s. army corp of engineers flooding its comments section with stupid and deceptive messages!
Thank you for blogging on this important issue. The ruling is a wake up call to the nation! Perhaps now more people will understand that levee failure and flooding in America is not a New Orleans problem, not a coastal problem, and not even a sea level problem.
With 55% of the American population living in counties protected by levees, the majority of the nation’s people will now understand that changes must take place in the way water projects are chosen, funded and implemented.
