Without watching the video, I live 1-1/2 south of new orleans. The reason why it sucks it's in a bowl it floods super easy

Way down in Louisiana close to New Orleans. Way back up in the woods among the evergreens. Stood a log cabin made of Earth and wood. Lived a young boy named Johnny B Goode.

"here let me tell you about a place that shouldnt exist...while claiming how much i love it, yet also cant pronounce the simplest of Louisiana names." show me you know nothing, without telling me you know nothing. give me one area settled in the continental united states and i too can find 10 reasons it shouldn't exist.

Humans will build anywhere to live. Even by a volcano. Then wonder why natural destruction happens. Dumbass human beings.

I have a friend who's family is on the bayou. Many people lost power, their homes, and are without water. It's been a month and there's still a hundreds out of their homes.

New Orleans is the 21st century Atlantis, but ghetto version.

good video. one major mistake in the illustrations: Mississippi water level is always higher than the lake Pontchartrain level. Remember Lake Pontchartrain level is at sea level and the river has to flow down stream to the river mouth near venice, LA to sea level. there is a spill way, Bonnet Carre spill way to divert river water to the lake. if lake water level is high, it wont make any sense.

if things go badly and the city sinks underwater for good, at the very least they will have a cool mostly-underwater city for tourists and divers a while afterwards

With living in the Pacific Northwest for nearly 2 decades, I had always wondered why so many towns along the Columbia were underdeveloped - with the exception of a couple cities - but then I realized that Railways were common by the time we saw significant population growth in the Oregon territory. To this day, they still use alot of barges to move bulk agricultural material but there's not alot of large developments along the waterway compared with the Mississippi

New Orleans is pretty much America's Atlantis. At least that's my takeaway.

Why would you call the United States a Global Empire? Do you think the Queen knows about this hostile takeover that's going to happen to subjugate all these other countries to their will? Do ya think they will use the bio-terrorism virus mask and vaccine combo to do it?

Probably the only way to save NOLA now, is to destroy the city district by district incrementally, dredge up the seabed, fill in the 'bowl', and rebuild on top of the new ground, so it can stay about a few metres above sea level and buy it centuries of more time.

After Katrina, when everything was a wasted mess, dirt should have been hauled in to build the city up. But in typical stupid Louisiana fashion, they did nothing of the sort. Clock is ticking for a bigass flood again.

Plus, along with every other city on the Lower Mississippi, Middle Mississippi, or Illinois rivers, they drink Chicago's sewage

Can't they just expand the city towards the West and build a Dam

Don't you mean the entire state of Louisiana needs to be relocated? Yeah, we are sort of effed down here. And your pronunciation did not bother me that much. Didn't even notice your pronunciation of "Atchafalaya" till it was pointed out. Note we do not pronounce anything within our state correctly so don't feel too bad.

So basically to everyone viewing this in 2988 this is a documentary based on the Ancient city of New Orleans Aka modern Atlantis which is currently underwater while being debated if it even existed. Yes, we were here 9/25/21

Sounds like New Orleans can either follow the Dutches' method of dealing with water or they can build a lot of pipelines and send water to the dry west coast.

You do know that a ship in the Mississippi could actually carry a lot more than that 10 or 12 trucks and and could’ve literally cut transportation cost in half rail roads in the US is terrible and you got to maintain the rail line You don’t need to do that with the Mississippi airplanes seriously don’t you realize how expensive that is

And not to mention that geopolitics, not freeing the slaves or preserving the constitution, was the main reason why Lincoln couldn't let the South secede. Fine with South Carolina or Alabama, but not with Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, and Louisiana. Civil War was essentially won by capturing New Orleans and Vicksburg, not by marching through Georgia or bleeding in Virginia.

The only solution that I could suggest viably would be plant a hell of a lot more trees possibly at least having a tree per quarter acre, so as to have their roots be a natural water management system.
