Save Our Wetlands, Kill Humans
The Save Our Wetlands organization is trying deperatley to save their name, amongst other things.
In light of recent stories blasting the organization for filing lawsuits in 1977 to prevent the Army Corps of Engineers from building a more effective floodgate system, the organization takes aim at the levee system set up in place of the alternative they sued against.
Quoted from SaveOurWetlands.org:
"'Mr. Naomi said an I-wall section of the levee did indeed fail, and he agreed that a T-wall design design probably wouldn't have'".
They use Mr. Naomi to point out that the levee sytem failed, leaving out the whole time that the floodgate system would have not. More importantly, because these earth saving greenies have tied up the courts with this crap, they delayed this life saving project forty years. If built when initially planned, the project would have been in place about twenty years before Hurrican Katrina hit.
Quoted from Michael Tremoglie and FrontPageMagazine.com:
"In the 1970s, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Lake Pontchartrain and Vicinity Hurricane Barrier Project planned to build fortifications at two strategic locations, which would keep massive storms on the Gulf of Mexico from causing Lake Pontchartrain to flood the city. An article in the May 28, 2005, New Orleans Times-Picayune stated, 'Under the original plan, floodgate-type structures would have been built at the Rigolets and Chef Menteur passes to block storm surges from moving from the Gulf into Lake Pontchartrain.'"
It seems as if to me that they are blatanly ignoring the fact that they sued to rid the plans of setting up a floodgate system. Of course they are, what am I thinking? They don't want to point the finger at themselves. Pass the buck and the blame without telling the whole story. As proved here at DCS, their political rhetoric is extremely flawed and nothing but a bunch of liberal hogwash.
So, once again, it is more important to protect shrimp and shellfish than human life. Sad, isn't it?
