New Video Shows Frightening Amount of Land Loss

Last week, I took a flight to show a journalist what the Louisiana Gulf coast looks like from the air. Some of the areas we flew over are just down right scary in terms of how much land has been lost. Much of the damage I showed her was caused by the oil and gas industry as evidenced by the canals dredged for exploration and pipelines. Look for the straight, green edges surrounded by water and when you see those areas you are looking at oil fields that were once all solid, green land that has since been destroyed. The areas shown in the video include Northern Barataria Bay near Mud Lake and Bayou St. Denis; Grand Isle; wetlands near Leeville and Golden Meadow along Bayou Lafourche.

The more people that become aware of this crisis the better our chances of prolonging our future in this region, so please share.
