Climate Change Remapping Louisiana's Coastline

Friday, May 22, 2020 (Listed under Environment)

The last five years of this blog were lost in a recent server update, so it's time for a new website!

In the meantime, please check out my climate consultancy site, 

A sampling of my climate and environmental stories can be found on this site's Publications tab.

I'm currently working on a number of exciting climate projects, including a review of Louisiana's coastal ecology ten years after the BP Macando well blowout in the Gulf of Mexico. It was then, on April 20, 2010, that the Deepwater Horizon Rig caught fire fifty miles off the Louisana shore. That accident, considered to be the largest environmental disaster in U.S. history, resulted in the loss of eleven lives. Over the following 80+ days, between 130 and 240 milllion gallons of crude oil ran unabated into Gulf waters.

Check out my twitter story recapping the disaster. Included are updates on the state of Louisiana's waterways from the now Lt. Gov. of Louisiana, Billy Nungesser, and long-time Louisiana fishing guide, Captain Keith Kennedy.

Not only does Louisiana continue to rekon with contaminated beaches, wetlands and bayous, but the impacts of climate change are also bearing down on the state, making coastal resilency efforts more challenging.

Look forward to seeing you and hearing your views on Twitter.
