The Race to Reclaim Louisiana's Vanished Land Back From the Sea 15.10.2014 Mother Jones
This story originally appeared in The Guardian and is republished here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration. The GPS showed David Morgan still on dry land—but the waves bumping beneath his boat revealed the reality of this lost Louisiana landscape. Rising seas have obliterated 30 points on the map in the last three years at Plaquemines Parish where Morgan lives. Sugarcane fields, citrus groves, backwoods—all gone. "This was all land here when I was a kid. There was no water anywhere," said Morgan, 57, slowing the boat to pass oyster beds. "I used to hunt rabbits there with my dog," he said. Louisiana is losing land to the sea faster than anywhere else in the world. But the authorities say they have a plan to turn back the seas—and get BP to pay a substantial share of the $50 billion cost out of criminal penalties from the blowout of its well in the Gulf of Mexico . The plan includes proposals for more than 100 engineering projects along the coastline, diverting the Mississippi, dumping fresh sand on ...

Oil prices plunge as production rises, fueling concern in OPEC 15.10.2014 Washington Post

The roller-coaster ride of oil prices is speeding downward, carrying with it bickering members of OPEC, anxious U.S. shale oil producers and a Russia that relies heavily on petroleum revenue.

With a weak global economy, the customary swing producer of oil — Saudi Arabia — has cut prices instead of cutting production, setting off a scramble on world markets. Crude oil prices have tumbled more than 23 percent since June, including a more than 4 percent drop Tuesday. Prices fell below four-year lows to wind up at $81.84 a barrel for the benchmark grade, West Texas Intermediate.

I Worked In a Strip Club In a North Dakota Fracking Boomtown 15.10.2014 Mother Jones
The Whispers strip club in Williston, North Dakota. AP Images/Josh Wood This story first appeared on the TomDispatch website. At 9 p.m. on that August night, when I arrived for my first shift as a cocktail waitress at Whispers, one of the two strip clubs in downtown Williston, I didn't expect a 25-year-old man to get beaten to death outside the joint. Then again, I didn't really expect most of the things I encountered reporting on the oil boom in western North Dakota this past summer. "Can you cover the floor?" the other waitress yelled around 11 p.m. as she and her crop-top sweater sidled behind the bar to take over for the bouncers and bartenders. They had rushed outside to deal with a commotion. I resolved to shuttle Miller Lites and Fireball shots with extra vigor. I didn't know who was fighting, but assumed it involved my least favorite customers of the night: two young brothers who had been jumping up and down in front of the stage, their hands cupping their crotches the way white boys, whose role ...
