Wetland loss in coastal Louisiana is measured in units of one Delaware since the 1930s. The problem is that we'll have to keep coming up with larger measures to keep up: a Nebraska-sized shelf, a Texas-sized drought area.

In Texas in 2011 there was a small, but catastrophic fire in the Bastrop State Park just east of Austin. Affected 96% of the loblolly pine trees, I wonder what the future could hold for east Texas, Louisiana, & states eastward if severe drought comes to areas not used it? 1/2

My wife and I got married in Bastrop. That fire was horrifying; I drive through Bastrop on my way from Austin to Houston when I am back home, and the burn scars on the landscape were heartbreaking.

In Germany we use Saarland all the time. Maybe you should use Saarland, too. More exotic.

Rhode Island is 1.22 times the size of Saarland, for the record.

Gotta say, as a native of the Ocean State, pretty darn tired of this metric. ;)

Maybe if things get worse, we'll be unfortunate enough to measure in Connecticuts, Vermonts, New Hampshires, or New Jerseys, instead.

In the UK, "the size of Wales" is the accepted unit of measurement.

It will soon be an international unit of measurement by popular acclaim. As in, "The iceberg was 1.25 RI's".
