Mother Nature Claims Another City

An interesting perspective on the disaster in New Orleans. Cities being wiped out by natural forces are sadly nothing new. One example from history is Mesa Verde, former home of the Anasazi, who were allegedly driven out when climate change made it impossible to grow their maize.
It may be helpful to remember that the United States is no more immune to the will of nature than it is to the repetitious patters of human behavior.

I couldn't view the link, but yes, our modern day hubris leads us to believe that things like this can't happen in our day and age. Pompeii, Mesa Verde and of course, let's not forget Atlantis.
