Episode 114: John M. Barry of Restore Louisiana Now

On this podcast, we speak with author, John M. Barry, about the erosion of land from the Louisiana coast.  This erosion impacts Louisiana residents, who are susceptible to future storm surfers during hurricanes that might otherwise have been dispelled by the additional landmass. John was part of a committee dedicated to protecting Louisiana’s coastline and spearheaded an effort to get oil and pipeline companies (whose dredging contributed to the erosion) to help shoulder some of the cost of preventing further damage.
