Houston’s flooding shows what happens when you ignore science and let developers run rampant

Since Houston, Texas was founded nearly two centuries ago, Houstonians have been treating its wetlands as stinky, mosquito-infested blots in need of drainage.
Even after it became a widely accepted scientific fact that wetlands can soak up large amounts of flood water, the city continued to pave over them.

Civil Engineering

At the beginning of the video: "Civil engineering is everywhere. It's in every road you drive, it's in the clean water you drink. It's where you live, work and play."
Towards the end of the video: "Civil engineers have cool jobs. They're creative and informative.
They make an impact and change life, making our world a better place."
Couldn't embbed it so just right-click the link. Thx
