The state needs to set fireline fires about one hour before the first snowstorm moves in. Preburned long, thin strips can stop megafires next summer.
The state needs better wilderness firefighting equipment: for example, vehicles that can go up steep terrain with a load of water or with a pumper so that water can be sprayed 500 feet in elevation above a pond or creek.
The world needs economical renewable alternatives for all major fossil fuel uses. Heating homes should be obvious - store solar heat for nighttime. Storing solar heat is also a way of generating electricity after dark. Our freeway system is too wasteful of fuel.
So, we need politicians that put their R&D funding where their mouths are. Most of the time it will be better to run a sacrifice primary campaign than to give voters no choice at all. Courage!
R&D must never mean lavishly funding Harvard and Stanford but cutting everybody else off without a cent. Real inventors with really good ideas are found all over the place. So look for them. Look or die, are those your only two choices?
We need to inhibit and reverse the Arctic meltdown using rather ecologically benign tools. Artificially coating the tundra with snow, probably using wind power, is pretty benign and could be effective.
We want to preserve animal species threatened with extinction until we can restore the planet’s climate balance.
Carping isn’t that useful. I’m of course ignoring the Koch Brothers’ troll farm that always posts here. May their constant off-topicking and putdowns of everybody here reinforce your belief that your participation is critical to the climate movement, because they’re sure wasting a lot of energy on you all the time.
