Prevention is better than cure. The hurricane victim, the US has learned this well from the ravaging Katrina and Rita. Cleaning up the mountains of debris created by the devastating hurricanes only will not do. As experts predict that the earth will be frequented by hurricanes and strong storms in the future due to climate change, some preventive measures too, are to be taken. The environmental authorities are thinking of making a better use of the debris formed by the hurricanes. The behemothic debris could be the very stuff to protect Louisiana’s ravaged coastline and keep hurricanes at bay. They state authorities are planning to grind up the approximately 50,000 fiberglass boats destroyed in the storms and mix them with cement to build artificial reefs. And use tree limbs and timber from homes as sediment traps in the marshes. They seem to explore all sorts of options for waste, as they are present in huge amount and there a lot to fix along the Louisiana coast.
