- National picture -- Texas floods (1972 & 1998) -- The 100-year flood myth -- Local politics -- Tropical Storm Allison (2001) -- Texas flood repeated -- A prediction -- Hurricane Katrina (2005) -- Post Katrina speech.
- A new documentary that takes a critical look at the systemic failures behind the growing catastrophe of floods in this country. Through an amazing collection of flood footage and in-depth coverage of repetitive flood victims, this movie uncovers the profiteering and neglect that ensure increasing devastation for our ever-urbanizing society. The precious land at the water' edge, so vital for wildlife corridors and open space, is being turned into a federally-subsidized disaster zone that brings great fortune to bankers and builders and the perpetual debt of the underclass.
