I attended the BP Protest in New Orleans last weekend because there is a distinct connect between the oil drilling debacle and the flood of New Orleans. At the center of both disasters are engineers and the lack of adequate legal federal oversight.
The Army Corps of Engineers is concerned that the Asian carp fence is now potentially threatening the public health and safety by sending dangerous levels of electricity into the surrounding landscape.
