The Louisiana coastline is disappearing at the astonishing rate of 25 acres a day EVERY DAY But when you mention this to people at best they will lament the sad sate of environmental affairs and our seeming inability to make progress on battling climate change but likely they will just shrug their shoulders It may be sad but what can be done Plenty if there was political will and money and business and government and communities working together The reason a lot of people shrug their shoulders over this however is that they really don t understand what it means to them in real terms The Gulf of Mexico and specifically the gulf coast of Louisiana is a huge source of the seafood consumed in America and that industry supports the livelihood and way of life for generations of people who still live off the land and perpetuate a uniue culture The ecosystem of the gulf waters is also dying off rapidly with the deterioration of the marshlands Can the erosion be reversed Can the coastline be rebuilt or at least saved Can the gulf oil gas industry operate in a way that minimizes impact on the environment and is there a role for them to play in rebuilding part of what they destroyed with all the canal dredging in the gulf access waterways Ironically some of the very forces that are destroying the wetlands are creating a boom in brown shrimp harvest The very people whose means of earning a living relies on this harvest are experiencing a boom that is on the verge of turning to bust in a few short years Then what happens Where will they go The loss of natural barriers also means the loss of protection from hurricanes A strong enough storm unimpeded has the potential to wipe out not only the coastal communities but New Orleans and upriver to Baton Rouge and beyond You think Katrina was bad It can get a whole lot worse very soon unless something is done NOW I got carried away there for a minute with the uestions but they are real and the issues are important and deserve far attention than the short shrift the topic gets todayThis book sounds the alarm on the current state of affairs of deterioration of the bayous and coastline of Louisiana Part environmental treatise part travelogue part cultural examination and delivered with a vivid illustrative and heartfelt narrative this book is really a love letter to the bayou The author manages to mix science and culture studies to tell the story of this huge ecological dilemma through the eyes and words of the people who live along the bayous and rely in some way on the gulf for their survival Really well done highly recommend this book to anyone who cares about our environment If nothing else it will give you new appreciation for the shrimp on your plate
