The New York Times just broke a huge story about the flooding of New Orleans during Katrina.
The story is titled: Decade after Katrina, Pointing Finger More Firmly at Army Corps - www.nytimes.com/2015/05/24/us/...
It's a story about a brand new scientific article by famous engineering experts Ray Seed and Dave Rogers. The article actually contains a retraction of statements they made in 2006 about who is responsible for the levee breaches.
The article, accepted for publication in Water Policy (the prestigious journal of the World Water Council) backpedals on damning statements Seed and Rogers made, namely that local levee board officials used politics to force the Army Corps of Engineers to build the inferior levee system that failed ten years ago.
The tight concise paper separates the facts from the fairy tale.
According the authors, it was the Army Corps that doomed New Orleans because 1) the Corps made a tragic miscalculation on a large-scale study they did in the 1980s, and 2) the Corps believed it was congressionally mandated to build structures that cost the least.
The 14-page article is also a “one stop shop” and addresses most, if not all, of the significant issues and events relating to the cause of the flooding during Katrina. Check out the NYT story by Campbell Robertson and John Schwartz.
