The pictures and stories coming out of the Colorado grassfire-turned-wildfire are terrible. The current thinking is that a downed power line sparked it, as downed power lines have sparked so many of the big fires in California and the rest of the west.
Why we don’t have power lines underground with all the other utilities is a mystery to me. Maybe the BBB package had something in it for this relatively simple mitigation?
Climate change is already here, wildfires are a symptom of which we will see more. I don’t know how it all ends (other than our planet becomes un-inhabitable), but I do know that we need to address it quickly. Fires, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, we’ve seeing them all this year; my bold prediction for 2022: we’ll see more.
What does it take to wake-up?
