Here’s What Happened In New Orleans While Mitch Landrieu Was In Paris Talking Climate Change

While Mayor Mitch Landrieu was in Paris, France talking about “resiliency” and climate change with the likes of Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, much was going on in New Orleans.

Here’s what happened while Landrieu was away:

Meanwhile, Landrieu attended a resiliency conference of about 20 mayors from around the world to talk about how climate change is impacting their cities.

Landrieu’s trip was apparently paid for by the conference and not the taxpayers of New Orleans. Landrieu has said he will dedicate at least $60 million towards “resiliency” funding for the city. It is still unclear what the money will actually go towards.
