At what point do we stop rebuilding and relocate the whole damn city to higher ground?

Maybe climate change is making hurricanes more frequent, or maybe we've just been lucky the last few decades, but at some point this is going to cost a silly amount of money. Man-made ways to cope with the local geography are only going to do so much since the ground in that area has been sinking little by little every year.

Is there really no feasible way to leave the areas below sea level to nature and relocate most of the infrastructure, or do we need to spend hundreds of billions to rebuild the city 3 or 4 more times first?

Have you no sense of History? No feelings for your fellow man? Don't you think the likes of Mayor Nagin should have the same opportunity as in the past to profit from this weather event?

I posted this in the thread in the lounge....pretty much your take from a TIC persepective:



Maybe this is God's way of sayin'.....

"Look ya stupid bastards, Katrina shoudda taught ya'all sumthin'. Friggin' National Geographic has called Naw Orlins 'a disaster, waitin' to happen' for 30-40 years, and yu' ins all still don't think they is serious. Lordy. What we gotta do to convince ya' all to move dat shit 15-20 miles inland, at least? Well, maybe a stinkin' Norweigan friggin' hurricane will wakes your silly asses up....finally?"

:shrug:


:hmmm:


FTR, I hope EVERYONE evacuates to safety; as they have had PLENTY of time to do so.



Seriously though, move the fugg inland....will you? :shake:
