Does Losing a City Teach Anything? – Katrina: The Failures of Success

ZOE CHAFE, Staff Researcher, World Watch Institute. “Katrina was much more than a natural event; human hands played a role in the damage and in the storm’ equally disastrous aftermath,� writes former New Orleans Times-Picayune reporter John McQuaid in the latest issue of World Watch magazine, devoted to unraveling the factors that exacerbated the impact of Hurricane Katrina. We will discuss the many factors that went into this disaster with Zoe, including the government’s role in disaster mitigation and the question of whether or not to rebuild a historically vulnerable city. www.worldwatch.org.
