There's a good treatment of the politics of Louisiana's environmental catastrophe in "Strangers in Their Own Land": https://www.amazon.com/Strangers-Their-Own-Land-Mourning/dp/...

The author talks to a lot of people in the state about the conflict between loving the outdoors (outdoor sports/hunting/recreation are big) and supporting companies that dump chemicals in the bayous, because of jobs. There's a lot of fatalism.

If you'd like to know more about how it's different, Robert Reich talked about it recently at the Commonwealth Club https://www.commonwealthclub.org/events/2016-09-27/robert-re... and UC Berkeley Sociologist Arlie Hochshchild spent 5 years researching it (https://www.amazon.com/Strangers-Their-Own-Land-Mourning-ebo...), here's a Mother Jones article about it http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2016/08/trump-white-blue....
