What 2050 could hold in store for SE Louisiana

From Richard Campanella's book, Time and Place in New Orleans.
Areas in blue are less than 1 ft above today's sea level.
Due to climate change and local subsidence, southeast Louisiana could look like this in 2050, especially if the levees fail in Orleans and Jefferson parishes before then, and the submerged lands are abandoned because because of no money, or worthless money.
