Have 9 minutes? Watch this affecting New York Times video on a disappearing island on the coast of Louisiana — a victim of rising sea levels, coastal erosion and stronger storms.

It's a note to add to the chorus of reflexive posturing that follows, say, a bold initiative to reduce carbon emissions and perhaps encourage more environmentally friendly ways to produce electricity. This dying community is mute testimony to the not-so-hidden costs of business as usual.
