Will Rita be used as pretext to reflood New Orleans?
Now, this sounds like they are installing temporary walls at the end of the canals that connect to Lake Pontchartrain -- supposedly to guard against a surge from a storm that is set to hit Galveston, Texas. The problem with this is the greater threat could easily be from the rain. And with these canals closed, New Orleans will have to rely on a relative handful of temporary pumps in the middle of the storm, which will barely put a dent in a good-sized rainfall.
The Louisiana Air National Guard should counteract this move by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers by firing dry ice (frozen carbon dioxide, CO2) into Rita, or at least the air above and around New Orleans. This is a simple, long-proven technology to prevent rainfall. It has been used to clear the skies for concerts put on by the alleged PAUL MCCARTNEY and is a service offered by firms based in Russia and Florida.
The 159 Fighter Wing Louisiana Air National Guard can be reached at (504) 391-8300 .
