In case you missed it, CNN's John King was on AC360 last night talking about the devastating flooding in Tunica, Mississippi.
It's been obvious for a few years now that global warming makes historic data no longer adequate to predict severity and frequency of future storms and resultant floods. Why didn't states and/or the Corps of Engineers get some stimulus money for major construction projects to improve levees in vulnerable areas without waiting for the latest crisis? Would improving the levees cost as much as the cost of the damage caused by the floods?
