Something I’ve noticed is that everyone who doesn’t interact with people from louisana on a daily basis love the state. And a lot of us that do, think if you’re going to build a wall, you should just put it around louisana.

The city of New Orleans was a great place to build in the past. The levee system was actually the bad idea as far as the river goes. I listen to people, not from New Orleans, wrongfully explain why new Orleans is a bad idea. Theres many homes and Plantation mansions that's 300 yards or less from the river, and have been there way before the levee system. If the levee system was never built our coastline wouldn't be eroding, New Orleans wouldn't flood that bad. All you need to do is look at a geographical map and you can clearly see where the river would naturally go. The levee system wasn't built to save New Orleans, it was built to save Houma, Morgan City, and everything in that area. Which in turns put New Orleans at risk, but that's not what you want to talk about. The levee system cut off natural waterways that fed silt to the coast that was building coastline and Louisiana lost its ability to grow and in turn started to erode. And as far as the lake, New Orleans wasn't originally supposed to be so big and built in that direction as far as it was. That's why when in the city of New Orleans and head toward the lake the look and feel changes. And when you reach the end of Canal st. you will notice that's where all the cemeteries are. That's was the furthest it was supposed to go. But can't tell real estate salespeople, people that don't do there homework before making a decision to build or businesses that just want to make money anything. Sometimes the truth isn't in books or coming out of someone's mouth with a good voice. Sometimes you gotta do the leg work and get your information from an older person from that area to learn real knowledge. At the time of building the Huey P. Long bridge, theres photos taken and there was no levees. I believe that was in the 40s. The house my mother lives in at this moment is older than the levee and when the levee was created, it was placed about 20 feet away from the house. The original owner said that's where his garden used to be and one day he was handed papers and there was nothing he could do about it. So all you scholars that dont do leg work and only want to read books and listen to people who also only read books, y'all truly dont know sh!t lmao

New Orleans will definitely be underwater by the end of the century. Surprised that the city wasn’t engulfed by Hurricane Katrina. Everyone needs to move away from New Orleans and make it a ghost town. Worst city 🏙 in the USA 🇺🇸

I mean, yeh floods are a PITA but these mofos aint doing themselves any favours.... most of the houses in flood areas seem to be a single ground floor. Would some stilts and more high rises not help a bit... although it sounds like the ones moving have probably got the right idea at this point

Sad because things progressively got worse with covid and Ida. Speaking with my family every other day just reminds me how much has changed in the two years I've been gone. Schools are closing, gentrification is taking over, and jobs aren't as plentiful. This video is hitting the mark though on its placement. If there is another hurricane caliber of Katrina, I don't see it staying on the map😓😭

Throughout this entire video I just thought: FUCKING LEAVE. Go up north and let New Orleans get taken back by Mother Nature. I just can't feel sorry for a population, city, and state, that continues to ignore what is going on and keeps thinking they can overpower and control Mother Nature.

Probably too many dams upriver that are blocking fresh sedimentation, that and the city needs to earthfill the lowest districts and then rebuild at least 5 or 10 feet above sea level.

When my grandfather passed away, I was informed he owned a large island off the LA coast... And now it's ours. "Wow, we're rich!" I naively thought. My dad broke the other news: "The land stinks and we couldn't give it away. Sorry. It's a worthless swamp." What a doozy! We inherited land that's more of a burden to own than not. The taxes we have to pay on it are more than it's worth in the open market. To this day we still own a swampy island a sq. mile in size. And it's utterly worthless.

I live near New Orleans. The city is always devastated by hurricanes, most recently Ida, so when people say Louisiana will be eroded in 50 years, i get happy sometimes. At least we won’t all have to suffer from such catastrophe.

As someone who lives in Louisiana and goes to New Orleans fairly often, I can confirm it’s a bitch. I went down there one day and it started raining, and within like 5 minutes, water was filling the roads going up to people’s car doors.

And I grew up in the New Orleans area and I love it. By the way, I have a solution. Let's build Los Angeles and San Francisco on Fault Lines. As far as population goes New Orleans has recovered and has its' Metro Population back to pre-Katrina levels of 1,250,000 and 65 miles away Baton Rouge is booming and has a Metro Population of 870,000. The Mississippi River is kept in its' banks because there are 140 refineries and Chemical Plants on its' banks between Baton Rouge and New Orleans. The US Army Corps of Engineers has been spending Billions and constructed many Flood Control Structures. You also are ignorant of Hurricanes and the fact that Ida never threatened New Orleans as it came from the West side of New Orleans and not the East and actually threatened The West side of NOLA and Baton Rouge. Hurricanes are part of living in the Gulf Coast (particularly from Houston to Pensacola) and always have been. You really are full of crap. So stop the BS.

New Orleans and Phoenix are cities that will probably have to be abandoned within the next 100 years. Oh, yeah. Forgot about New York and Miami. New York will get all the money to save it, while the government abandons Miami and New Orleans.
