Denying climate change spells doom for Louisiana’s coast

This opinion piece from Louisianna asks :¬†“Why does Louisiana’s Attorney General Jeff Landry,¬†President Donald Trump, EPA administrator Scott Pruitt and the GOP Congress — including many in Louisiana’s delegation — want to drown south Louisiana over the next 40 years?”

This is not an outrageous charge. It is based on this fact: Each of those policy makers has recently called climate change a hoax or continues to oppose regulations and research that could reduce the sea level rise the state’s own scientists say will drown almost everything between Lake Charles and Slidell by 2067.
