The Louisiana coastline is exceptionally vulnerable to rising sea levels, but Governor Bobby Jindal has instructed President Obama not to talk about climate change on the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.
In a letter addressed to the president, flailing presidential candidate Bobby Jindal unleashed a torrent of stupidity and misnomers.
“Although I understand that your emphasis in New Orleans will – rightly – be on economic development, the temptation to stray into climate change politics should be resisted,” Jindal states in the letter. “While you and others may be of the opinion that we can legislate away hurricanes with higher taxes...
...business regulations and EPA power grabs, that is not a view shared by many Louisianians. I would ask you to respect this important time of remembrance by not inserting the divisive political agenda of liberal environmental activism.”
If the state of Louisiana were on fire, Bobby Jindal would tell his constituents to roast marshmallows.
The good news is the president has no intention of following Jindal's advice and will address the need to take action now to prevent future disasters that could dwarf the consequences of Hurricane Katrina.
