I did not understand, until doing a lot of work around mapping old photos onto the land surrounding New Orleans, how utterly wrecked that environment is. Go into Google Street View and look at all those straight water lines cutting through the sensibly messy bogs and bayous. Those are all canals dredged for oil lines. Look how MANY there are! What a mess. But of course they’re all secure and never leak or damage anything right? Riiight. And I’m sure this didn’t do a damn thing to Lake Grande Ecaille either. Oh, except for this.
