Hundreds talking about climate change in Louisiana

Posted: Updated:

NEW ORLEANS, La. (KNOE 8 News) - Many are calling for action during Hurricane Katrina's eighth anniversary. Lawmakers, residents, and religious leaders are hoping something is done about climate change. If so, they believe the effects of extreme weather events like Hurricane Katrina can be avoided. The discussion  took place in New Orleans Saturday at an interfaith breakfast. More than 1,800 people died along the gulf coast during the storm. One person says the country must take action.

"We have to keep our eye on the coast, the restoration of the coast and as you plan and execute the master plan, you've got to take into consideration climate change; Sea rise. This is important to our country, it's important to our city and our state," Anne Milling with Women of the Storm said.

The prayer breakfast follows President Obama's historic action on climate change.
