Around the world, governments have recently been issuing an unsettling call for their citizens to become more self-reliant. Just this week, the governments of both Germany and Czechoslovakia warned that people should be prepared for ““be prepared for the worst case possible scenario.”

But here in the United States, just the opposite is happening. Our government seems to have an unquenchable thirst for cracking down on those who take responsibility for themselves. There is an abundance of evidence of this in Louisiana.

The southern state has been hit with the worst flooding in over 500 years.

While the final numbers won’t be known for some time, Gov. John Bel Edwards’ office has estimated 60,646 houses were damaged and 30,000 people rescued; other people escaped on their own.FEMA says 109,398 people or households have applied for housing help, and 25,000 National Flood Insurance Program claims have been filed…

Louisiana’s Coast Is Sinking, State Is Disappearing – Business Insider

AGR Daily News Service

It’s becoming harder and harder to communicate the most urgent crisis facing Louisiana.According to the U.S.G.S., the state lost just under 1,900 square miles of land between 1932 and 2000. This is the rough equivalent of the entire state of Delaware dropping into the Gulf of Mexico, and the disappearing act has no closing date. If nothing is done to stop the hemorrhaging, the state predicts as much as another 1,750 square miles of land  —  an area larger than Rhode Island  —  will convert to water by 2064.An area approximately the size of a football field continues to slip away every hour. “We’re sinking faster than any coast on the planet,” explains Bob Marshall, a Pulitzer-winning journalist in New Orleans. Marshall authored the series “Losing Ground,” a recent collaboration between The Lens, a non-profit newsroom, and ProPublica, about the Louisiana coast’s epic demise.

Zero Hedge

Obama Will Visit Louisiana…But After Bill’s Birthday Bash In Martha’s Vineyard?

Due to his rigorous golf schedule, Obama sent US Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to visit Louisiana who explained that Obama “can’t be everywhere” because he “has a very busy schedule.” “

Offshore Windfarms Can Greatly Reduce Hurricane Windspeed and Storm Surge by Absorbing Kinetic Energy from Winds

M.A. said “…this is really serious. It could save the New Orleans area by reducing storm surge by 79%. I think that the wind farm would need to be off the Mississippi coast but maybe it’s still the toe of the boot in Louisiana. It is worthy of a reblog so people can start talking, especially with Katrina anniversary (and Camille).”

Mark Z. Jacobson1*, Cristina L. Archer2 and Willett Kempton3, Nature Climate Change, Vol. 4, March 2014, funded by the NSF and NASA:
Hurricanes are causing increasing damage to many coastal regions worldwide1,2. Offshore wind turbines can provide substantial clean electricity year-round,…
This study quantitatively tests whether large arrays of wind turbines installed offshore in front of major cities and along key coastal areas can extract sufficient kinetic energy from hurricane winds to reduce wind speed and storm surge, thus preventing damage to coastal structures…
