    The governors should tell the Fed to **** off, and send down the Army if they think they can stop it. Dredge, baby, dredge!!!!

    You guys do understand the potential dangers of the dredging and sand berms could outweigh the dangers of the oil getting to shore, right?

    Obviously you should straightaway write to Gov. Jindel and warn him of these dangers!
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Aside from the massive cost, the question of whether or not it would even WORK, if they could even be done in time (oil is already hitting the coasts and the project would take 6 months or more), the potential for erosion in merely a couple of months, and the question of where the hell they're going to get 56 million cubic yards of high quality sand withOUT deepening waterways that would increase hurricane intensity and without destroying entire habitats of bottom dwelling creatures necessary to sustain countless other wildlife.... one must also consider that the sand berms will disrupt the tidal flow necessary to sustain the very wildlife and habitats they are trying to save. Not to mention the possibility that narrowing those tidal channels could cause the oil to shoot further inland than it would if the berms were not built and then possibly trap the oil there. When you restrict the area in which water is flowing, you increase the force of the flow.

    There's just more to consider than sand and oil.
