New Orleans. They are going to rebuild the city, but do you think they should? The city is already below sea level and sinking. Parts are expected to sink by as much as 8 inches by 2015. The gulf coast nearby is eroding also. But lotsa people simply wont leave their homes in the area, wont imagine living anywhere else. I have moved so much in my life, I donít really understand why they would feel that way, but thatís just me. I think that even barring sea level rise, the city is SINKING and that along with its already below sea level elevation is just asking for another disaster. The city will keep sinking, but you cant build adequate leveeís indefinitely. They are not even adequate now!
I think that all cities must end in time, and I think its New Orleans time before something even worse than Katrina will happen. It may not happen for 100 years, but because of its location and geography, it will happen again. And again.
DO you think the city should be rebuilt?
