  • Climate change is leading to longer and drier wildfire seasons, but the government’s failure to act is also having an impact.
  • Improper forest management, such as not having controlled burns, is creating denser forests and subsequently more intense wildfires.
  • By incentivizing more active forest management, local and state governments can adapt better to climate change’s effects on forests.

Cities at risk of flooding would find investments in flood mitigation a much more cost-effective approach than…banning the internal-combustion engine. But those approaches are practical, not idealistic – and thus, they get much less attention.”
