A Louisiana Tribe Is Now Officially A Community Of Climate Refugees
- Auuuuh....herrrrrrr....some national leaders say there is no climate change. They might also be anti science and believe the world is 6000 years, cause the Bible told them so. Go figure.
Deep in the bayous of Louisiana, about 80 miles southwest of New Orleans, lies the Isle de Jean Charles, a tiny swath of land that's all but vanished into the Gulf of Mexico.Over the last half-century or so, the island has fallen victim to irresponsible oil and gas extraction practices and the effects of climate change. Many of its residents -- members of the Isle de Jean Charles Band of Biloxi-Chitimacha-Choctaw Native Americans -- have been forced to flee.
