At the very end of August 2005, Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, and significant parts of the city were flooded. Parts of the town were completely destroyed, however, the French quarter was largely saved. The devastation was enormous, the cost of reconstruction equally. 14 years later there are still houses that have not been rebuilt. In our Western world, the results of hurricanes and floods are blamed on climate change. We still hear this in the climate debate. This explanation is far from reality, and is only politically correct. There are many other reasons for the flood damage in and around New Orleans.
