Louisiana is losing chunks of its coast at a remarkable rate, a football field an hour. The erosion threatens to destroy most of the US offshore oil and gas production, much of its seafood industry and millions of homes.

Climate change is part of the problem, but a big factor driving this trend is drilling and dredging for oil and gas. Should the fossil fuel industry foot the bill for restoring the coast? Or should taxpayers pony up the full amount? We’ll talk about the political battle over the vanishing delta.
