NOAA administrator to speak at LSU

On Tuesday, Jan. 22 at 3:00 PM, Conrad Lautenbacher, Undersecretary of commerce of NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) is going to speak at LSU about "building coastal resiliency" in Louisiana. The term "coastal resiliency" makes me think of barrier islands in particular, but it's not clear what exactly he'll be discussing. Anyway, I think it's worth going, because the loss of the wetlands is Louisiana's single biggest issue (more on that later). The talk will take place in the Dalton J. Woods auditorium of the Energy Coast and Environment Building off the Nicholson Extension. It's free and open to the public.
