France 24 debate on Harvey

I was on the France 24 debate in which I condemned intensive building in flood plains and the lack of action since Ike. The Federal government refuses to finance the Army Corps of Engineers to carry out a study, bascially going over two studies already done by scientists and scholastics and choosing the best solution. Harvey was just the shot across the bow. If Ike had landed 30 miles further West in 2008, there would have been thousands of dead and the country’s economy wold have come to a stand still. You can watch the debate  here.
