Will building sand berms in Gulf of Mexico reduce amount of oil reaching coast?

June 2, 2010

I wanted to take this opportunity to point out and direct you to the first-rate blogging on this subject by Michael Welland at his blog Through the Sandglass. Michael has three posts about the potentially ill-conceived geoengineering idea to frantically construct artificial barrier islands offshore of the Mississippi delta wetlands.

These posts are required reading for anyone desiring to cut through all the chatter flying around the news about this idea.

And I hope Michael continues to blog about this topic in the coming days (weeks? months?) as oil continues to gush out of the Gulf of Mexico sea floor.
