Locked

Local Urban Ecologist Dr. Josh Lewis tells the hundred year history of the Industrial Canal and Lock that dissects the infamous 9th Ward in New Orleans. He describes the wide reaching effects of how we do water transportion in Louisiana and describes how irresponsible urban planning that ignores ecology has lead to repeated catastrophic flooding in the region since 1927. 
This history cum Call to Action is aimed at mobilizing our city and our country around the intersection of industry, ecology, climate change and politics.
