I don't see how anyone could just abandon New Orleans any more than anyone could abandon NYC or Chicago or Los Angeles or any other major city with rich culture, history, and tradition. You can't just abandon people's homes and livelihood.

BTW, how much has the sea level risen lately?? Environmentally fragile...

Don't forget, Chicago got destroyed once too.
