http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-...tate-of-emergency-over-disappearing-coastline It says they are losing about a football field of coastline every hour. That's the equivalent of roughly 57,600 square feet, 5351 square meters, or 1.3 acres. My math isn't any good on Friday anymore, but this is an alarmingly fast rate for coastline to be eroding. it also makes me wonder, why Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida haven't done the same. Is it only eroding Louisiana at that rate?
