Tell me why this was in my suggested and I was literally just in New Orleans a few hours ago😂

Probably the only way to save NOLA now, is to destroy the city district by district incrementally, dredge up the seabed, fill in the 'bowl', and rebuild on top of the new ground, so it can stay about a few metres above sea level and buy it centuries of more time.

After Katrina, when everything was a wasted mess, dirt should have been hauled in to build the city up. But in typical stupid Louisiana fashion, they did nothing of the sort. Clock is ticking for a bigass flood again.

Plus, along with every other city on the Lower Mississippi, Middle Mississippi, or Illinois rivers, they drink Chicago's sewage

Can't they just expand the city towards the West and build a Dam

Don't you mean the entire state of Louisiana needs to be relocated? Yeah, we are sort of effed down here. And your pronunciation did not bother me that much. Didn't even notice your pronunciation of "Atchafalaya" till it was pointed out. Note we do not pronounce anything within our state correctly so don't feel too bad.

Can't say I'm shocked that we did something without thinking through the long term consequences.

So basically to everyone viewing this in 2988 this is a documentary based on the Ancient city of New Orleans Aka modern Atlantis which is currently underwater while being debated if it even existed. Yes, we were here 9/25/21

Sounds like New Orleans can either follow the Dutches' method of dealing with water or they can build a lot of pipelines and send water to the dry west coast.

I also love New Orleans, mostly for the food and the culture. But I wouldn't want to live there.

You do know that a ship in the Mississippi could actually carry a lot more than that 10 or 12 trucks and and could’ve literally cut transportation cost in half rail roads in the US is terrible and you got to maintain the rail line You don’t need to do that with the Mississippi airplanes seriously don’t you realize how expensive that is

And not to mention that geopolitics, not freeing the slaves or preserving the constitution, was the main reason why Lincoln couldn't let the South secede. Fine with South Carolina or Alabama, but not with Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, and Louisiana. Civil War was essentially won by capturing New Orleans and Vicksburg, not by marching through Georgia or bleeding in Virginia.

The only solution that I could suggest viably would be plant a hell of a lot more trees possibly at least having a tree per quarter acre, so as to have their roots be a natural water management system.

I moved here and it's ruined me. It's insane to live here but once you do, it's hard to leave. I might just let myself die here in a cataclysm. Everyone's gonna die soon anyway.

It's geography is why new Orleans exists has great geography amazing for trade, transport and look in fact with out it it wouldn't be a major city.

Imagine when they were making the decision to make the world's most expensive advance Levi's. Did they even ask, how much time will this buy us?

Fantastic logic displayed and a brilliant presentation! My only mild suggestion is to slow down the narration a bit, but its hardly a major concern. Keep up the good work!

most of New Orleans floods in resent years have more to do with political corruption then geography. We have the Technology, the city/state is just too cheap to use it.

I wonder if there is a city/country whose geography doesn't suck..singapore seems to be a good contender. RLL hasn't made a video, almost every other creator has done so lately..

I moved to Biloxi Mississippi in July 2005 from the twin cities Minnesota right after I graduated high school my stepfather was stationed at Keesler Airforce base and had lived there since the 80s he was a MSGT and flew with the hurricane hunters their picture is actually at the hardrock in Biloxi. Katrina hit the next month and he broke down New Orleans history and Geopolitical problems and vulnerability to hurricanes allot of which I learned in high school the city always fascinated me and I have been many times. I also worked in the Grand isle and port Fouchon during the deep horizon oil spill disaster and the surrounding barrier islands and also worked getting oil out of Fort Livingston, very fascinating history.

Is New Orleans normally referred as 'she'? Why is that? Non-native here, it got me curious and quick googling didn't give any results

As a native and current resident to New Orleans, I’m watching to see if I hear some things that could be WRONG in this video rn 😂…but then there may be some things I NEVER knew🤷🏾‍♂️

Somehow it is a little bit too colorised to say all of this, that would be best location ever, there are plenty of another rivers around the world, and cities located on the estruaries
