Ahoy, crew!

I just wanted to let you know about the Mississippi River Alliance aka the Mississippi River Towns and Cities Initiative (a regional climate change group), if your city in is the Mississippi River Basin Region, they should join the 124 cities currently in the group and doing remarkable climate change activism:

I'm going to start a petition for one of my leaders, Mayor-President Sharon Broome, Baton Rouge to join myself.

Good luck and steady sailing!

My current town isn't one of the River Towns, but I live in Mississippi. Most of my friends growing up had parents that worked for the Corps of Engineers. None of us were alive for the Flood of '27, but we know what happened.

I've driven in the MS Delta. If those levees break, we're screwed.

I am not in Mississippi, but this sounds so cool! Good on so many towns and cities being proactive about this (and not in the part of the country I would necessarily have expected, either). \o/
