How severe has flooding due to climate change and pollution in lakes affected Louisiana lately? Since the state is already below sea level is it possible that the state may change shape or flood in the future?
@cummins_leila great question! You might appreciate this activity from Public Lab contributor @eustatic over at one of our partners (another non-profit) Healthy Gulf:
Last fall, Public Lab held our monthly interactive event, OpenHour, and we got to learn more about this project. You can watch the archived recording on our website here, scroll down to October 2020: https://publiclab.org/wiki/openhour-archive

Only the some of the parts behind levees are below sea level, the rest of the state actually floats to some extent. Weird as that sounds.
This is the biggest plan to change the shape of Louisiana, rather than merely letting things drown.
But, yes, try out land loss lookout!
