Earth Day 2008: Saving the Louisiana Coastline

Happy American (but not international) Earth Day! To celebrate this day here is a blog post on a very important issue: the possible saving of Louisiana's coastline.

The Times-Picayune has an article that proposes a natural solution to save the coastline. Water diversion projects can possibly redirect sediment back into the marshlands and save the valuable ecosystem that doubles as a hurricane buffer.

National Geographic has a great article on the value of the wetlands. So, for Earth Day one does not need to save the world all at once, but instead teach and educate others on supporting initiatives which save the Earth and people.
