I guess the Army Corps of Engineers is doing a pretty thorough response job to that Time Magazine story I linked to the other day. I mean it must be thorough of this tiny blog is among the places to get a note about the official reply!
In the interest of, I don’t know, telling you that the Corps has a responses, here it is:
TIME magazine’s article, “The Threatening Storm,” undermines the real science and risk information citizens need to make informed decisions about rebuilding with its reckless disregard for the truth.
The Corps provided TIME magazine with engineering, scientific and risk information derived from the Interagency Performance Evaluation Task Force’s (IPET) study done in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The IPET study has been independently peer reviewed by the American Society of Civil Engineers and the National Academies. TIME chose to base their article on upon technical quotes that are not supported by science-based facts or the analysis done by IPET, ASCE or the National Academies.
