Of course, political/science-writer Mooney has previously addressed Louisiana's eroding coast as well as its exposure to devastation by hurricanes. (However, he's yet to confront the horrifying "balls of stinging ants" issue, as far as I know.) Mooney also has a book coming out soon called The Republican War on Science which I will be sure to read. Truly, the guy's on fire.
But let's recap: the most important issue facing our state is coastal wetland erosion. It's a public problem needing a public solution. That is-- it will require a liberal solution. That's right, I uttered the dreaded "L" word.
Say it again, loud and proud people: a LIBERAL solution involving federal funds will save this unique place called Southern Louisiana. Not a conservative one.
I guess I could also put it in simple terms: Liberals saw the savagery of our wetlands loss and prepared to fight it with money and science. Conservatives saw the savagery of our wetlands loss and coddled the most anti-Louisiana president in recent memory, and then demonstrated how well they can mobilize when the gay "ass-sex " agenda threatens their soon-to-be-underwater homes.
But that would be inaccurate.
