#147, "Katrina - What Will It Change?"
In response to In response to 2


I suspect that after all that pain & suffering, little will be done in regard to environmental solutions such as attempting to restore (if even possible) coastal wetlands, in administrative policy like restoring funding for the levee projects, or in people's attitudes in general about the perceived value of coastal property and how they'll just get bailed out by the Feds. So not much will change, New Orleans et al will be rebuilt and some years down the road we'll go through it all over again in some shape or form.

Just seems like there's a lot of people talking sense out there but I'm just too cynical about long-term follow-through on actually most anything these days. The ability to focus and *maintain* society's collective attention span is a skill/art that should be prized. How to educate and elevate global consciousness when we're all watching Martha Stewart or "Survivor"?
