Here we are again: California burning. Picks and shovels – really? This is 2018 not 1818. Just because you did it that way for two hundred years doesn’t make it right.
I don’t want to hear the same old BS about why. No place has done more to combat climate change than California – and yet here we are with 18 active wildfires. Someone needs to wake up and devise new methods of preventing and fighting these fires.
A. – How about spending a half billion dollars to clean up old growth instead of spending 18 billion dollars to repair the damage? Wouldn’t that be a start?
B. Putting thousands of firefighters on the ground obviously isn’t working. Nothing against these brave men and women but they need to open their eyes and look at new ideas. http://morawski1.com/is-it-time-for-new-thinking-on-fighting-wildfires/
C. Elon Musk – want your reputation back? Here’s a clue: figure something out.
D. Way aren’t the insurance companies stepping up? You’d think these guys could save themselves billions by coming up with some solutions.
