Thanks EK

Vicious cycle to break.
I have a friend who was involved in forestry management here in AB. Years before the Slave Lake and Ft. Mac fires he was part of a group that made recos for towns and cities in the boreal forest as far as fire prevention and management went. It was put in the corner cupboard and then the fires happened. Apparently a similar study is getting traction now.

Most of it was common sense, basic recos but no one had the will to implement them.

Much of Florida, the Carolimas, and the Gulf Coast will likely also become unlivable over the next few decades due to increased hurrican activity and ocean level rise. If I have interpreted the affected populations correctly, there will be many more Republican voters displaced than Democrats.

Then there are the desert states like Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona, and much of Texas which will likely lose much of their water supplies and likewise become uninhabitable.

An interesting aspect to keep track of...
