Join WWNO — New Orleans Public Radio and Bob Marshall, The Lens’ Coastal Desk reporter, on Wednesday, May 22, for an in-depth discussion of coastal issues discussed in our new series The Louisiana Coast: Last Call.
The series reveals this sobering consensus from coastal scientists and state officials: If the master plan for the coast isn’t completed over the next 40 years, most of southeast Louisiana will be under water before the end of the century.
Tuesday at 1 p.m., Marshall will participate in a live chat about whether there’s hope for the coast. Is it too late to reverse the accelerating loss of land? Should we spend $50 billion in restoration projects?
