I suffered a few minutes of NPR
Why would you subject yourself to that right wing rag?
Apparently the only officials from Louisiana or the feds that NPR has any interest in hosting are climatologists. No FEMA, no state first responders; just climatologists.
One night I was channel surfing and caught part of an olympic soccer match. I never watched anything else, but I'm sure that means NBC aired nothing but soccer matches over weeks of coverage. Because reasons.
While discussing the floods with the climatologists, both the federal and state climate guys made the mistake of mentioning the fact that the high costs and displacement are as much to do with recent property development as the amount of water. You could clearly detect the host's frustration as he attempted to get these hapless officials back on the rails speculating about climate and saying disparaging things about fossil fuels.
Sounds like confirmation bias. Yours, not the reporter from National Pentagon Radio. Yes, it's a problem when greedy developers are allowed to build in flood plains and sell to unsuspecting homeowners. But so many people are putting on their tunnel vision glasses to stare at that tree, and ignore the forest that is a once-in-a-thousand year flood putting land under water that has been dry since before this country's founding.
