Hurricane Katrina devastated the city of New Orleans ten years ago this week. What perspective should Climate Hawks take on this pivotal event? What have we learned? Katrina represents a microcosm of human and societal impact that global warming may have, and presents us with a guide about how to do things right in the future.
The reading list:
- Lessons from Katrina
- Why 'adaptation" is a bad idea
- Danziger Bridge
- No Shelter from the storm, Part 1
- No Shelter from the storm , Part 2
- No Shelter from the storm, Part 3
Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist that the United States put a price on carbon.
Thanks for listening.
