#Regram #RG @nytimes: An abandoned boat in front of the home of Marq Naquin and Ochxia Naquin, who live on Isle de Jean Charles in Louisiana. For over a century, American Indians on the island fished, hunted, trapped and farmed among the lush banana and pecan trees that once covered acres. But since 1955, more than 90% of the island’s original land mass has washed away. Because of the impacts of #climatechange, a $48 million federal grant has been allocated to resettle the island’s residents. The location of the new community has yet to be chosen, and moving is voluntary. Marq and Ochxia say they plan to stay — and they aren’t alone. Attachment to Isle de Jean Charles runs deep. Meanwhile, old and well-earned distrust of the government hangs over all efforts. Visit the link in our profile to read about America’s first #climaterefugees and to see more photos by @joshhaner.

  • angie.rowlandsIt's a pity that money seems to be the answer to our planets problem. If everybody could show respect and compassion for other people and animals maybe this would be a good starting point

  • ainnnhouuIt's sad but a lot of people don't care about what you say, about the message, even if it affects them; they just think: "Oh, look, it's Leo and he's talking about something, how cute he is"... 🙄

  • sumeria_How can I help with any of this ? What all do you do? I dream of a world with no pollution. I'm limited on money and I recycle but I don't feel like it's enough at all. I wish I could do more :( @leonardodicaprio I speak of the awareness but that's clearly not enough. I wish I could of been as smart as Nikola Tesla. 😂
